Specifying additional response details in the design pane
Single and multiple response questions
By default, UNICOM Intelligence Author displays only the Responses field in the Design pane for single and multiple response questions. To view the other available fields, click the Field Chooser icon, and then select the appropriate fields.
Grid questions
To view available fields for responses or subjects, click either the Advanced Responses Editor button or the Advanced Subjects Editor button. In the Advanced Category Editor, click the Field Chooser icon and select the appropriate fields from the dialog.
Numeric grid questions only provide options for the Name, Description, and File columns.
Choose the Design pane.
Name
Displays automatically generated response names for each of the responses you entered. These are not seen by respondents, but they identify the responses in the questionnaire file and appear as category names when the results are analyzed in UNICOM Intelligence Reporter or UNICOM Intelligence Reporter - Survey Tabulation. Optionally, click on the default response names and change them to more meaningful names. Names cannot contain spaces.
Use the up and down arrow keys to move between response names. If the Key Code field does not display, click the Field Chooser icon, and then click Key Code.
Responses
Type a description for each question response. When printing draft paper surveys in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, this description is included. Descriptions are not included in the actual paper survey.
Key Code
Enter a custom keycode for each question response. UNICOM Intelligence Author automatically assigns keycodes to categories for the following question types:
Single response
Multiple response
Single response grid
Multiple response grid.
A custom keycode for a categorical list question enables you to define the keycodes used for entry instead of using those generated by UNICOM Intelligence Author. These custom keycodes remain the same even when categories are filtered.
Avoid using keycodes that start with the same characters. You should not define ambiguous keycodes, especially when one keycode is a part of another keycode. For example:
Q1 "What activities do you like?" {Basketball keycode(1), Football keycode(11)};
For this question, the interviewer's intention cannot be determined when they press 1. Changing the keycodes to the following to get better results:
Q1 "What activities do you like?" {Basketball keycode(01), Football keycode(11)};
Now the interviewer's intention can be determined because although both keycodes contain 1, the interviewer must press a unique first character.
The Ctrl and Alt keys can be assigned as keycodes, but the user interface Ctrl and Alt assignments override the keycode assignments.
Type
Shows that all responses are single response, which means that the respondent can select only one of these responses. You can, however, change one or more of the responses so that it has a type of Don’t Know, Refuse to Answer, or No Answer.
Go To
Shows that when the question has been asked, the questionnaire moves to the next question in the routing list. You can change this so that a particular response causes the questionnaire to jump to a different question. Type the question name or select it from the list.
Other
Specifies that a response is to be treated as an Other specify response, so that respondents can enter additional text when selecting the response.
Missing
Specify that a response is to be treated as missing data. For more information, see Setting responses as missing.
File
Enables you to attach a picture file to each response or subject. For more information, see Attaching images to responses.
Analysis Value
Enables you to attach values to each response for use when the question results are analyzed. For more information, see Adding analysis values to responses.
Factor
Enables you to attach a factor to each response for use when the question results are analyzed. For more information, see Adding factors to responses.
Fixed
Provides a check box that enables you to specify that a response/subject, or a group of responses/subjects, must keep its original position in the response/subject list when the list is sorted, rotated, randomized, or reversed.
Exclusive
Provides a check box that enables you to define a single-choice category in a Categorical question. This option is typically used in multiple-response questions to define a single-choice category such as “None of the above”.
