I have a SharePoint-Hosted app with a survey with textareas and radio buttons. The textareas and radio buttons are connected with columns in a SharePoint list so the user is filling in all boxes and then press a save button to send the data to the list columns. It's a bit complicated to read the answers because it's all on one row.

When you go in to the SharePoint list and want to read the answers is it possible to open it in the same survey page to read the answers?

So when you click on the item you want to see it in the same page you answered it in.

I want to do it in JavaScript.

You can open the site in SharePoint designer , go to your SharePoint List and create a new Display form. In that display form you can re use the same html and JavaScript code of your Survey page. See this blog to know about custom list form.
