Randomizing the answer categories

Problem

You want to randomize the order of presentation of choices of answers to a question.

Solution

Add the ROTATION keywork to the question name line.

Discussion

The ROTATION keyword added anywhere on the question name line (except in the first position, obviously, as that one is reserved to the question name) tells CallWeb to shuffle the display of answer categories in random order. However, categories with a code greater or equal to 900 are always left at the end of the list of answer categories and are not subjected to randomization; this way, "Don't know" type answers can remain at the end of the list of choices.

Answer choices can be randomized in the same manner when questions are laid out in table format. The order of presentation of the entire table is then driven by the order selected for the first question in the table.
