QET (Questionnaire Encoding Tool) - Operating Instructions

The system allows for preparation of specific interview content, testing of the questionnaire correctness and real-time progress monitoring. As partial results are available as soon as the first interview is conducted, the system provides means for preliminary data analysis and quick implementation of required modifications.

Advanced scripting language provides access to attached files, databases and other programming languages.

Application Overview
