Instruction for creating a survey AND customized automatic report

Hi all, 

I understand I can somehow create customized results reports to be shown to the respondents. I couldn`t find any instruction for that. Where can I find instructions? Or are there examples I can use to build on to them? 

And: I am a psychologist so I know how to design surveys and self-assessments but I am not very good with tech tools. What do you think: Is it possible for someone like me to figure out how to do this? 

Thank you for advice. 

Stefanie

Hi Stefanie,

I have learned to do this, but the learning curve may be steep. I generate automatic, personalised reports by triggering an R-script at the end-URL. This R-script then reads data from the survey and compiles a report that is send to the email address the user supplied.

When you are in a hurry, I would like to offer my services.

If it is about self assessment, I don't think you need to go very far. Of course, it depends on what you want to present to the respondents, but usually for self assessments it is enough to use what the Expression Manager offers.

Usually you want to calculate some assessment value and based on that you want to show a text or an image or something. This can be done with expression manager.

Here a couple of links that you should have a look at:
manual.limesurvey.org/Expression_Manager
manual.limesurvey.org/ExpressionScript_examples
manual.limesurvey.org/Expression_Manager_sample_surveys

The first link gives you a general idea of what Expression Manager is and what it can do.

Then there are examples and even sample surveys.

How does this generally work?

You create one or several equation questions that will calculate the results and then use one or several text display questions to show your respondents the results.

Without knowing what you want to calculate and how you want to show it, there can't be said much more at this point.

Thank you very much for now! I`ll read through the links and try to get started. I am sure once I do that, I`ll have more precise questions.

Yes, more precise questions are usually better to respond here in the forum.

Just play with it. Don't go all out from the beginning. Built a small prototype with maybe 3-4 questions that you use to create a mockup assessment. Then see how it works.

Build on this will be a lot easier than to try to figure out how to create the assement for a very long survey already.

If you go with holch's suggestion, you can also add a "Print" button - stackoverflow.com/questions/20101409/how...-a-form-in-a-webpage

Can I ask a follow up question:
For one survey I would organize the questions into groups, one group representing one of nine subscales. (Later I assume I can tell the system for the results report to calculate the scores per subscale and build scores for scales that entail three subscales each.)

You had given me the tip that I can put all four surveys and the soziodem. part into one survey (accessible with one link).
How then do I organize the other three surveys? In a way that participants can pick which of these to take?

Thank you.

Would this be a survey group? And then the four survey plus the sociodem. question as a survey in this group?

Is the parent survey just the one that sets the standard format for all?
thank you

I would say:
Group 1 Sociademographic (always shown)
Group 2 (or also in group 1): which modules do you want to take? (question code: mod)
Group 3: Module 1 relevance of group: mod_SQ001 (= module 1)
Group 4: Module 2 relevance of group: mod_SQ002 (= module 2)
Group 5: Module 3 relevance of group: mod_SQ003 (= module 3)

Thank you.
In one group representing one Scale, would I then just list the items in one big list and tell the program later which items to use (based on the item code) to build which score?
