“One tool that has proven to be particularly valuable to me is the formr survey framework. formr is free, open-source software that allows users to generate surveys and chain them together in a very flexible manner. We used formr to design and run a longitudinal study in which participants filled out a questionnaire once every three days. Participants got automated reminders via email, timed depending on when they had filled out the previous survey. In the end, they got automatically generated feedback (including e.g. their personality profiles). Commercial survey frameworks don’t offer this level of flexibility out of the box, so I wouldn’t have been able to implement the study I had designed without formr.”
