Maybe it's not that bad -- I didn't care for it, but I'm picky about some things. The way Limesurvey stores survey results in the database is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me, I cringe in pain when having to deal with it. The fact that survey_ids are non-sequential and lack 0's causes me heart palpitations. So I might not be a good judge.

The good thing is, it's easy to find out if it'll work for you, and the LS integration is pretty nice. So give it a try, and report back and let us know how well it work. If you're already used to the whole process with Scantron, this might be an easy migration.

Sounds good. I'll post how it goes.

I too despise poor database design (which some only think consists of table structure alone and could careless about names or IDs). We already work with a fair number, all fitting somewhere between a pleasure (only one of those) to down-right horrible. :)

I guess I'm just saying if the db design leaves much to be desired I won't be that surprised.

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

LimeSurvey output to queXML / the generation of paper forms is now well supported and stable. Just recently some updates where pushed to LimeSurvey to allow for styling the output of the paper form (see: github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/pull/344)

The queXF package can them be used to process the scanned paper forms. This workflow is used in our survey centre and many others that I know of.

What hasn't been maintained recently is the ability for queXF (using LimeSurvey's remote control feature) to send data from completed paper forms in queXF back to LimeSurvey so there is a single database containing responses from both modes (web and paper). This is simply because it hasn't been used in our survey centre and no one else has offered to maintain / sponsor development for it. I'd be happy to assist anyone who wants to contact me about this integration.

It must be possible to do it manually with VV export/import without any dev actually.

(we really need some "sponsoring/cross-finance system).
