I have a few questions regarding the wrong selection of single and multiple-choice questions . Our enumerators have reported that they have encountered various scenarios, which their selection was changed. Below is the explanation of the issues.
Question: Since March 2020, has the hours of your paid work…… (select_one)
- Stayed the same
Follow-up question: if increased/reduced, how much on average?
In this case, let’s say the enumerator choose option1 (increased) and then type 20% for the follow-up question. When they move to another question, their selection changed to option3 (reduced) and kobo asked them to type the follow-up question again.
Question: Who make decision to buy bicycle/motorcycle/car/other vehicles? (select_multiple)
- Your spouse
- Your mother
- Your father
- Other family member(s)
In this case, let’s say the enumerator only select 1 and 2. But, when they move to another question, their selection also include 3 and 4. Therefore, they need to come back and deselect options that they did not choose.
I have also attached a part of the xls form for your reference. We used iPad and Enketo as datacollection tool for this fieldwork. At first, we thought the browser could have been the cause since we used Safari, so we switch to chrome. However, the issues were not solved. The same scenario keep happening. I have also tried going through the xls form many time already, but I couldn’t spot any error that could cause these issues.
Therefore, I would be very grateful if you can take a look at xls reference, or provide any advice on how I could fix these issues. I’m looking forward to your response.test-error-1.xlsx (12.2 KB)
