This may be a stupid question, but is there any way to suppress the presentation of buttonvalues for a Likert trial? For example, the following code produces a Likert trial in which the Likert response buttons are labelled from -4 to 4:

<likert NiffLuupGroupPref>
/ mouse = true
/ stimulustimes = [0 = Grouppref, fillin, AnchorNiff, AnchorLuup]
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2%)
/ numpoints = 9
/anchorwidth = 10%
/ buttonvalues = [1 = "-4"; 2 = "-3", 3 = "-2", 4 = "-1", 5 = "0", 6 = "1", 7 = "2", 8 = "3", 9 = "4"]
</likert>

<text Grouppref>
/ items = ("Which do you prefer in general?")
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 5%)
/ position = (50, 20)
</text>

<text fillin>
/ items = ("Respond with the mouse or by using the number keys (1-9 from left to right) to select an option and ENTER to confirm it.")
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2%)
/ position = (50, 80)
</text>

<text AnchorNiff>
/ items = ("Strongly prefer Niffites")
/size = (15%, 5%)
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 3%)
/ position = (90, 40)
</text>

<text AnchorLuup>
/ items = ("Strongly prefer Luupites")
/size = (15%, 5%)
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 3%)
/ position = (10, 40)
</text>


Is there a way to create a Likert item with the same internal button values, but without these numbers (-4 to 4) showing up on the Likert buttons?

Thanks again!

No. Best you can do with a <likert> is not use buttonvalues (so the buttons will say 1 to 9) and just log a variable that's the response minus five.

<values>
/ response_adjusted = ""
</values>

<likert NiffLuupGroupPref>
/ ontrialend = [
    values.response_adjusted = likert.NiffLuupGroupPref.response - 5;
]
/ mouse = true
/ stimulustimes = [0 = Grouppref, fillin, AnchorNiff, AnchorLuup]
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2%)
/ numpoints = 9
/anchorwidth = 10%
</likert>

<text Grouppref>
/ items = ("Which do you prefer in general?")
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 5%)
/ position = (50, 20)
</text>

<text fillin>
/ items = ("Respond with the mouse or by using the number keys (1-9 from left to right) to select an option and ENTER to confirm it.")
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 2%)
/ position = (50, 80)
</text>

<text AnchorNiff>
/ items = ("Strongly prefer Niffites")
/size = (15%, 5%)
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 3%)
/ position = (90, 40)
</text>

<text AnchorLuup>
/ items = ("Strongly prefer Luupites")
/size = (15%, 5%)
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 3%)
/ position = (10, 40)
</text>

<data>
/ columns = (date time group subject session build blocknum trialnum blockcode trialcode response values.response_adjusted correct latency)
</data>
