Random item order

Hi there, I’m wondering if it is possible to randomise a survey for each time the person receives it? Or to at least randomly allocate survey item order?

Hi @l.j.trevithick2

Ethica does offer randomization on sections, questions, and answer options. It allows both randomizing the order of the options and randomly showing a subset of the items.

Unfortunately this option is not part of the graphical Survey Editor. You would need to download the JSON file for the survey, and modify it there. The details of these options can be found in our survey schema. you should look for the following settings:


I understand it might be tricky to set these. We are working on updating Survey Editor to add these to the user interface there, and it will take another month before we release this option.

Hope it helps,
