Open Source Survey Software

ACSPRI develops and maintains a suite of open source software for conducting survey research. It is used internally by ACSPRI’s survey centre, Academic Surveys Australia, and is available to the public under an open source licence.

queXML is used to describe a questionnaire and then deploy it in multiple modes - including a printable, scannable and software processable PDF form. queXML is available as an independent software package and also included in the Limesurvey online survey system.

queXF is used to automatically process filled and scanned paper forms, and for operators to verify the process using a web browser.

queXC is used to clean and code (classify) text data, for example for coding text responses in questionnaires to standard classification schemes such as the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO).

queXS is a web based computer assisted telephone (CATI) interviewing system. This system is available to download and is available as a cloud service.

The software can be downloaded at any time by following the links in the text. ACSPRI can assist with installation, support or customisation of the software - please contact surveys@acspri.org.au to discuss. In addition, a demonstration of the software can be made available. Software installation, support and customisation is available on an hourly fee for service basis. Details of our hourly rate and purchasing information are available here.
