    Order of random questions in data file

    [edited from support email]

    I am having trouble with randomization. I have a bunch of questions in random order that require a text response. But when I look at my output, the answers do not correspond to the questions. Is there anyway I could fix it so that my output will show me which question was asked and the answer the subject gave?

    The trials in the data file will always be listed in their non-randomized order for making analysis easier. In cases where you do need to use the random order information, simply check out the column in your data file called order--this will tell you the position in which the trial actually occurred.

    can not find the order data in my data set.

    Hi there,

    I have used the WGR function to randomise the order of images used as part of an experiment. I need to find out what order these images were presented in as part of the analysis. I am using media lab v2006. Please can you advise what to do.
