qualtricsBlockStack: Create meta data frame to align identical questions

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s)

View source: R/importQualtrics.R

Description

Qualtrics returns a data frame that has vertical "blocks", one for each "treatment condition" in an experimental condition. Researchers often want to align the questions from the blocks vertically, essentially converting the Qualtrics "wide" format to a "long" format. This is a helper function that identifies questions that may need to be stacked together. The input is a meta data structure (can be retrieved as an attribute from importQualtrics). It will find out which questions are identical and prepare to re-align ("stack") the columns.

Usage

1
qualtricsBlockStack(meta, questionname = "question")

Arguments

meta

A meta data structure retrieved from importQualtrics

questionname

Character string for name of column in meta data that holds the questions

Value

A new meta data table that horizontally aligns equivalent questions.
