Adding List Headers to a Semantic Differential Question

How do I add a header to my semantic differential question that appears at the top of the left-side list and the right-side list?

This functionality is not built into SSI Web 8, however you may accomplish this with a little jQuery code. Below is an example. In this case, it will place "Statement A" in the blank space above the left-side list and "Statement B" in the blank space above the right-side list. You should place this script into the footer question of your semantic differential question.

<script type="text/javascript">
  $(".left_label_header").html("Statement A");
  $(".right_label_header").html("Statement B");

Here is what the original question may have looked like:

Here is what the question looks like with the list headers added:
