A simple XML schema for designing questionnaires





queXML is a simple XML schema for designing questionnaires. Included are stylesheets to administer a questionnaire in PDF (paper), CASES and phpSurveyor. It is compatible with the DDI standard for data description.

PDF instruments created in queXML can be scanned and verified using queXF.

queXML is an XML schema that describes a questionnaire. queXML also includes related XML stylesheets. A questionnaire written in queXML can be "exported" to multiple modes of questionnaire administration/execution such as paper based (by exporting to XSL:FO and then PDF), web based by exporting to SQL commands which are compatible with phpSurveyor (http://www.phpsurveyor.org), or CATI based (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing) using CASES software (http://cases.berkeley.edu).

The advantage of queXML is that by writing a stylesheet for your particular survey execution system, you may use existing queXML questionnaires - and be able to execute your questionnaire in multiple modes either simultaneously or separately. Also, queXML is compatible with the DDI standard (http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/DDI/) - there is a stylesheet to convert an instrument in queXML to a description of that data that the survey execution system will collect. This means that the survey execution system need not be modified to be DDI compliant if the questionnaire was originally described in queXML.
