We host ImpactSurvey as our preferred online survey application. It is based on LimeSurvey, a free and open source software written in PHP, distributed under the GNU General Public License. Designed to be user-friendly, it enables users to develop and publish surveys, and collect responses, without doing any coding.
Please contact us if you need a user account on the survey tool. Registered unsers of this website can use a free account.
ImpactSurvey allows users to quickly create intuitive, powerful, online question-and-answer surveys that can work for tens to thousands of participants without much effort. The survey software itself is self-guiding for the respondents who are participating. This manual is thus focused at how to install the application, administer the installation, and support survey creators, administrators and report generation users alike.
ImpactSurvey has a variety of applications. It allows users to create and host high quality surveys, ideal for general data gathering purposes. It can be used in many different areas for collecting data from participants and target audiences.
Surveys can include a variety of question types that take many response formats, including multiple choice, text input, drop-down lists, numerical input, slider input, and simple yes/no input. Questions can be arranged in a two-dimensional array, with options along one axis based on the questions on the other axis. Questions can depend on the results of other questions.
ImpactSurvey also offers several more advanced features. It provides basic statistical and graphical analysis of survey results. Surveys can either be publicly accessible or be strictly controlled through the use of “once-only” tokens, granted only to selected participants. Additionally, participants can be anonymous, or ImpactSurvey can track the IP addresses of the participants. A much more detailed listing of features can be found on the LimeSurvey web page http://www.limesurvey.org and in the LimeSurvey manual http://docs.limesurvey.org
