Please have a look at this,

Try this,

In html,

<body ng-controller="MainCtrl">
  <p>Hello {{name}}!</p>
  <input type="radio" ng-model="user.answer" ng-value="'option a'">
  <label>option a</label>
  <input type="radio" ng-model="user.answer" ng-value="'option b'">
  <label>option b</label>
  <input type="radio" ng-model="user.answer" ng-value="'option c'">
  <label>option c</label>
  <input type="radio" ng-model="user.answer" ng-value="'option d'">
  <label>option d</label>
  <button ng-disabled="!user.answer" ng-click="submitAnswer(user)">Submit</button>

In app.js,

var app = angular.module('plunker', []);

app.controller('MainCtrl', function($scope) {
  $ = 'World';



Here is the plunker demo for the same

Though a bit late, i would like to post a second approach, since you are using Ionic-Framework.

If you at all have a dynamic number of radio button options, that are being driven by backend data [Even if you have a static radio button set, you can convert it to the formal], Then you should instead use Ionic's Radio Buttons :

I.E, In your HTML :

<ion-radio ng-repeat="user in userAnswers"
  {{ item.text }}

And in your controller :

$scope.userAnswers = [
    { text: "Backbone", answer: "bb" },
    { text: "Angular", answer: "ng" },
    { text: "Ember", answer: "em" },
    { text: "Knockout", answer: "ko" }

  $scope.finalAnswer = 'ng';

More Details can be found in the official documentation and the CodePen Demo

This post really helped me out. I ended up changing all my radio button ng-click events to ng-change. Hope this helps.
