Development of E-Form of 'Ready to Use Questionnaire' on Tablets for Azim Premji University
The research team of GRAAM assisted in data collection and data entry activities for a research team headed by Dr. Seema Purushotham at Azim Premji University. GRAAM follows electronic mode of data collection using tablets (as reported in our annual report 13-14), by coding the questionnaire to tablets using a software called kobotoolbox.com. Responding to APU’s proposal, GRAAM’s research team developed a ready-to-use e-form questionnaire that can be used on tablets. It was developed for conducting household surveys for the research on ‘Rural-urban Agrarian Dynamics’ at Azim Premji University.
Project Result / Accomplishments:
The GRAAM team plunged into the project by undertaking tasks such as understanding the questionnaire (mostly open- ended) and converted the questionnaire into a pre-coded tab based survey. GRAAM, besides renting out its tablets, trained field workers on using the tablets and conducting the survey. The data captured by the field workers was collected and provided to APU’s research team.
