If I understand correctly what you are trying to do you could try this. 
I have used the mootools $$ function to return an  array of input tags of a
particular class and then walk the array to find the checked one - you would
have to add a different class to each input set and walk each one. 
There's probably neater ways of coding it but it worked for me.
(apologies in advance for any typos - I always manage to get some in!)


<div class="stretcher">
<p class="compact">

<input class-"q7" name="Q7" value="0" type="radio"><span>0</span> 
<input class-"q7" name="Q7" value="1" type="radio"><span>1</span> 
<input class-"q7" name="Q7" value="2" type="radio"><span>2</span> 
<input class-"q7" name="Q7" value="3" checked="checked"
<input class-"q7" name="Q7" value="4" type="radio"><span>4</span> 
Element 1  
<p class='c'><input type="submit" name="submit" value="Save &raquo;"


function getCloseRating(){

// get checked button
	var pt = $$("input.q7");// mootools $$ function returns an array of
input tags with class q7
	// walk the array to find checked button
	if (pt.length != 0)// check to see if a button selected
		var ptIndex = "";
		for (var i=0; i < pt.length; i++)
		   if (pt[i].checked)
				//do something
