I can’t seem to set the default value on my VAS questions to anything other than 0 - is it possible to do this?
I’ve noticed in my data that when participants are wanting to rate items ‘0’ they therefore don’t have to touch the visual scale but it therefore appears as a ‘n/a’ in the data. Given the response patterns around these scores (i.e. items after and before have been completed) I dont believe these have been purposely skipped but reflect that the participants are wanting to score the item ‘0’. I hope that makes sense.
I’ve previously set items as mandatory, but in my practice trials even when I moved the VAS up to 10 and back down to 0, it didnt recognise this choice and would not let me proceed. I therefore removed the mandatory setting.
Thank you for your help
