Need an easy-to-use quiz/ questionnaire generator

Hi Mefites: I'm looking for a free/cheap web service that allows me to ask someone a few multiple choice questions via a survey and then be able to give them a text-based diagnostic (not a numerical score). Something similar to this, via Buzzfeed, where they ask a few multiple choice questions and at the end, they give you a pre-written response to how you've answered. [more inside]

Service or application to publicly visualize and analyze survey data?

I'm looking for a service or application that will make it easy for me to allow anyone to browse, analyze, and visualize the results of several large surveys (hundreds of questions, thousands of responses). Nothing overly complex – I'd just like people to be able to do some basic cross-tabulation and analysis of the survey responses. [more inside]

Assessment tool for grantseekers: personality quiz edition?

I am currently working with a local nonprofit to create a new grant program focused on community engagement. This organization serves primarily as a funding intermediary, raising funds and distributing them as grants to other nonprofits throughout the region. They actually have a number of existing grant programs that already require varying levels of community engagement, education, and/or outreach, and have tasked me with creating a self-assessment tool to pair potential grantees to the most appropriate grant(s). I'm thinking I need a tool that would help me create something similar to those personality quizzes you find online, but I am finding it difficult to know what resources exist for this and how I should format the thing.

Help me find a good programmer community for my research...

I am an academic who studies things like online communities and entrepreneurship. I would like to conduct a survey of open source and non-open source developers to see their commitment to helping out other programmers and their attitudes to entrepreneurship. When I last did research on this, Sourceforge was the place to go, but I have been outside of this world for awhile and it has moved on, perhaps to Github? Please help me figure out a good site to survey! Details inside... [more inside]

Efficient paper feedback surveys

I want to give paper surveys to a number of people and then use a computer to compile the responses. My thought is to use a camera or scanner to enter the evaluations into the computer, and then run some sort of OCR (which i know nothing about) or other program to highlight which boxes have X's in them or which items are circled, and then throw all that into an excel spreadsheet for further analysis. From a technology standpoint, (a) is this possible? (b) is this possible to set up in a week? (C) is this possible in such a way that tech-illiterate people can do it swiftly once it's been set up?

Which survey tool will show previous responses, in-line with questions?

I'm sending out a survey to a group of people, and it would be great if they could see how others (before them) responded to each question. Google Forms and Survey Monkey allow respondents to see past responses after they've completed the survey, but not while they're filling out the survey. Is there a tool out there that embeds past responses in-line with questions? [more inside]

Better response rate: direct email questions or an online survey?

I would like to follow up with participants from two recent leadership workshops, to get an idea of how they have incorporated what they learned, or how they have moved up in their careers (librarianship, if it matters), etc. Would I get better results if I emailed each participant directly and asked for their input via email, in a narrative form, or ask them to complete an online survey?

How to make an email survey to identify people in a photo?

I have a good scan of the group photo from my grandparents wedding. I know who several of the people are in the photo, and I know that all my grandmother's eight brothers are in the group, but I do not know which brother is which. My Dad has made his best guesses, but he's not sure about many of them. I have recently made contact with several second cousins in the family while doing my genealogical research, so I thought I could get each of them to give me their best guesses in some sort of online survey, and compile the answers to get a sort of family crowd-sourced opinion. But how best to do this? [more inside]

What do you do exactly?

We are planning on getting our little .34 of an acre property surveyed & the boundaries staked. We are in an older neighborhood with basic lots & homes. I plan to do my due diligence and find a good surveyor at a reasonable price. What should I be asking and what should I be weary of when I call around? Also, how exactly do I find who to call? Is there a registry? Are surveyors licensed? I have already checked with the county- there are no existing surveys for our property other than the original 1950 plat map. Obviously I have no clue what I'm doing, but want to sound like I have a at least a little insight when I start getting quotes. Tips & tricks appreciated.

Community Survey Alternatives

The county I live in would like to survey residents regarding their preferences on specific issues. I am familiar with survey monkey type internet surveys which we will likely utilize. However many residents do not have access to internet. So we would like to make the survey available in another way like calling an 800 number, answering questions with the phone's keypad. I have searched but cannot find this kind of product. Any ideas or other alternatives are hugely appreciated!

Toronto Boundary Surveyor

I need to get a boundary survey on my residential property in Toronto. I've called several surveyors but have only heard back from one, who says it'll cost $900 and take two weeks to perform.
