|Questionnaire Design and Development Tool
The Questionnaire Design and Documentation Tool is intended to provide an interactive and dynamic web-based tool which can be used to both document and retrieve information on the complex process of designing a cross-national survey questionnaire. It should provide a more streamlined and user friendly replacement for the current paper-based word template used to document the European Social Survey’s questionnaire design process.
The QDDT is intended to improve the efficiency of the questionnaire design process. The tool will provide a means of managing the design process, tracking the development of question items over different stages of pre-testing and review and incorporating input from multiple stakeholders. The QDDT should also provide the basis for generating the final field ready questionnaire from the question items developed and recorded within the tool.
