Program Title: SURVEY SYSTEM version 2.0 (Disk 2 of 2)
PC-SIG version: 1.2

SURVEY SYSTEM is a useful program for creating attitude or climate
surveys.  It lets anyone with minimal skills on the IBM-PC or compatible
create their own survey.  It creates the kind of survey which makes a
general statement and the reader then chooses one of five levels of
agreement about that statement.  I like the idea of it being a complete
system.  You first create a pool of general survey statements/questions
in a master file.  The statements are then incorporated into your
specific survey.  They can be modified, deleted or moved around once on
the specific survey.  A neat feature of the program is it can place the
survey output into text files.  Once in these files, you can exit the
program and use any wordprocessor with them.  They print in a usable
format, but if you want to get fancy or use Ventura on them this could
be useful.  Overall the system is fairly competent at what it does.

          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)


          The Survey System was developed for use by management and
          business consultants to get a good sense of the business climate
          within an organization without having to extensively interview a
          sampling of the employees at the various organizational levels.
          It actually turned out to be very effective in time savings to
          the consulting group since the administration of it was very
          simple.  It also allowed for responses from the entire target
          population giving a much more precise view of organizational
          attitude.  Although not a "scientific statistical analysis"
          program, it can aid you in making some very specific inferences
          about the population.

          This software is a complete do-it-yourself survey creation and
          analysis tool.  The number of surveys you create is limited only
          by the amount of storage space.  It is flexible in that you
          create the questions or statements as well as the population
          classifications or frames.  It is inflexible in its type of
          responses.  The respondents will select one of five levels of
          agreement to correlate with the statement.  Its completly menu-
          driven and easy to use.  It is also complete; it prints the
          survey, collects the responses and outputs the analysis and
          results reports.  About the only thing you need to add to it is a
          cover letter.  If you are not satisfied with the pre-formatted
          output that I have designed, you can select to pass any report or
          the survey itself to an ASCII file to be edited with your
          favorite word processor.  The file output appears exactly as it
          would if printed!

          The surveys created by this system are of the climate type.  In
          other words, people who are responding to the survey will read a
          statement and select from five levels of agreement with what the
          statement implies.  As an example, one statement might read, "The
          company has well defined long term goals."  And, as with all
          surveys created by this software, the possible responses are,
          strongly agree, agree, neutral, disagree or strongly disagree.
          Once many employees of the company have responded to this
          statement, you might see that possibly a large percentage of
          people said that they disagree with this statement.  This should
          lead management to make modifications in that area of policy.

          You will see that you can also classify the respondents in any
          one of three ways.  These classifications are strictly up to the
          designer of the survey and do not necessarily have to be used.
          In the example above it would be useful to know whether those
          responses which are most negative are coming from upper level
          managers or line supervisors or workers.  Classifying respondents
          can give you insight as to the reasons for overall response
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Using Pop-up Menus and Help

          This software comes with the most user friendly interface
          available to the IBM PC product line as of this version update.
          It is quite easy to use.  For the opening screen, you are
          presented with four choices: File Maintenance, Reports,
          Utilities and Quit.  Use the cursor control keys on your key-
          board to highlight the selection of your choice. As each
          option is highlighted a more complete description of its
          functionality is displayed on line 24. Press the ENTER key
          to access the options available to any of these Main Menu

          After selecting one of the 4 options from the bar Main Menu,
          a window will appear with additional choices arranged vertically.
          Again, press the up and down arrow keys to highlight the
          various choices within these menus. A further description of
          each is displayed on line 24. To select one of these options,
          press the ENTER key. To return to the Main Menu press the ESC
          (escape) key.  This will close the window at the same time.
          Additional sub-menus may pop up for selections on these
          vertical menu windows. In most cases, if you get into something
          that you are uncertain of, press ESC to back out of it.

          When you have finally gotten to the point where data input is
          required or some other information must be typed in, you will
          be able to access 'help windows.'  The note 'F1 - Help' will
          be highlighted in the upper right of the screen or it will be
          noted on line 24 notes when the help window is available.  As
          you guessed press the function key 'F1' to get a help window
          to appear.  The help is targeted to the function you are trying
          to perform at the time help is requested.

          A Sample Survey

          A very short and simple example of a survey with the survey id
          code "SAMPLE" has been created to allow you to quickly examine
          the various reports and to test the other options. Once you are
          satisfied with the workings of this survey, you may delete all
          of its questions as well as the few master questions created
          for it.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Using This Documentation

          The documentation contained herein is a detailed description
          of this program and how each menu option performs, what its
          for and how to use it best.

          If you have browsed the menus of the software you will have
          seen that to the right of each option is a number (e.g. '1.3')
          These numbers refer to the section in this documentation that
          fully describes their workings.

          Please note that the terms 'question' and 'statement' are
          used throughout the software and this documentation and they
          mean the same thing: a group of text to be rated by a respondent.

          Notes About Data Entry

          You will quickly notice that in order to modify some piece of
          existing information you must generally enter the key information
          on an entry point screen (i.e. to change an existing
          master question you must first enter the associated master
          question number).  On this system the pressing of the return key
          without entry of some characters is intrepreted as meaning that
          you are finished with the particular operation and to the return
          to the next higher level menu.

          You will also notice that in most instances a prompt such as,
          "Type '?' for a list..." appears at the bottom of these screens.
          This simply means that by typing a ? in the field will cause a
          program to execute which lists in alphabetic or numeric order the
          key information which you may need to know in order to complete
          the data entry.  It is simply a look up screen.  If the data you
          are looking up is in a very long list, you can narrow down the
          view by entering the first 1 or 2 characters of the key you are
          searching, followed by the ? symbol and the look up will begin at
          that point in the list.

          In the case of finding the right survey id code, after pressing
          the '?' a window will appear with all available id codes displayed
          in it.  The first one is highlighted. Use the cursor control
          keys to move the highlight to the code you want and press ENTER.
          This code will be placed into the field prompt and the program
          will continue automatically. If there are multiple pages of
          id codes, press the PgDn key to see the continued listing.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          File Maintenance (1.0)

          The following sections (1.1 - 1.5) describe the majority of the
          survey system data input functions.  From this menu you will
          create a cache of master generic questions/statements to be
          used on the individual specific surveys, build the surveys,
          record the responses to your surveys and maintain general
          system parameters.

          Upon selection of menu items 1.2, 1.3 or 1.4 you will be
          prompted for the survey id code. Here you must enter a valid,
          existing code to continue. Available at these points exists
          the ability to open a window to view and select one of your
          id codes. To access this window, simply type '?' and press ENTER.

          Master Questions (1.1)

          Before utilizing your survey system effectively you will need to
          compile and enter your list of master questions or statements.

          An original design assumption was that you would be creating
          very similar surveys many times over for various clients or
          tests. Although this is not a necessity, if it is true then you
          can essentially create a fairly generic set of statements and
          then use them on the individual surveys. A long term benefit of
          this is that you can analyze the entire pool of surveys based
          on the master question number (which is retained on every
          survey) using report 2.4.

          In cases where you are creating similar surveys over-and-over,
          it will be more efficient to have them instantly available in
          this master pool. Simply copy them one-at-a-time into the
          current survey and tailor it to be more specific if necessary.

          Each statement contained in the master list is created by
          assigning it a unique number, from 1 through 999. Thereafter,
          all references to that statement will be made using this number.
          After selecting this option on the menu, the question maintenance
          screen will be displayed and you are prompted for the statement
          number. Enter in a non-existing number and a prompt asks if
          you want to add this as a new question. After indicating 'Y',
          a highlighted box appears. Type in the text of the question.
          Be sure to enter the text exactly as you would wish it to appear
          on the printed survey or report. There is no automatic word wrap
          feature. If a word doesn't fit on one line, hyphenate it or
          move it to the next line.

          The master questions can be tailored once created on the specific
          surveys, so don't worry too much about very specific details.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Master Questions (1.1) (cont)

          To modify or delete an existing master question, simply type in
          the master question number and it will instantly appear on the
          screen for editing. If no editing is necessary, press the PgDn
          key and 'Confirm' the entry. At the options bar you may also
          select 'D' to delete any existing statement.

          Survey Headers (1.2)

          Each survey you create will have only one record in this data file.
          This record identifies the survey by assigning it a unique code
          which is made up of up to ten alpha-numeric characters.  It contains
          the official title of the survey.

          You will identify the popluation classifications on this record
          as well.  By classification, you will want to be able to identify
          the people as belonging to sub-groups.  An example classification
          would be the marital status of respondents.  The classes would be
          "married", "single", "divorced" or "widowed."  You will see that
          one of the reports can break the survey results down by
          classification.  You do not need to have all or any classes of
          respondents though.

          You will also notice that there is space for up to five rating
          statements.  These will consist of some statements which you
          want the respondents to prioritize. These will not automatically
          print with the survey. They do not need to be a part of the

          Survey Questions (1.3)

          This option is used to place the questions into the desired
          survey.  Once you have created a survey by performing option
          1.2, you will be able to add the questions to it. This option
          immediately requests you to identify the survey by entering the
          10 character survey code. Once you have done so it will lead you
          to the sub-menu of options.  All options on this menu will affect
          only the survey you previously activated. You will notice that
          the survey title is displayed at the bottom of the screen.
          The survey title will be displayed on all screens when it has
          been activated.

          If this is the first time you have selected this option since
          creating the Survey Header, you will be asked if you want to copy
          the questions of another survey into this one. This is handy if
          another survey exists with a very similar design. If you
          indicate 'Y' or yes, it will ask from which survey to copy the
          questions. Enter a valid survey id code and all statements from
          that survey will be copied onto the new survey. This option
          exists until you have added your first question to the survey.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Add From Master Questions (1.3.1)

          Once you have selected this option, the screen clears and prompts
          you to enter the master question number. If you do not remember
          what it is, simply enter the '?' for a look at the Master
          Questions. Enter the master question number and it will display
          the master question on the screen.  At the screen bottom, the
          option bar appears. At this time you have the options of editing
          the question on the screen. (This editing affects only the
          current survey copy of the question.) Slight modifications to
          the question are easily accomplished. You could also delete the
          question, which will simply eliminate it from being added to the
          current survey.  Finally, you will want to confirm the question.
          This confirming simply verifies the information and adds it to
          the end of the survey. It will automatically be assigned the
          next sequential number on the survey.

          Continue copying statements from the master list. To end this
          function press ENTER with no value in the question number field.

          Change/Delete a Question (1.3.2)

          Once your survey has statements on it you can edit them or delete
          them using this option. Once selected, enter the number of the
          question as it appears on the survey. It will be displayed for
          your editing. Press PgDn to access the options bar to delete or
          confirm the changes made.

          To locate the unknown number of a survey question, type '?' in
          the number field and press ENTER. A window will appear showing
          the questions on the survey. You may browse through this list
          to find the desired question. Then press 'Q' to close the window
          and enter the question number.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Insert a Master Question (1.3.3)

          In many instances you will not want to simply add a master
          question to the end of the survey, but place it in some specific
          location within the survey.  To do so is simply a matter of
          identifying the master question and then the question on the
          survey to place it before. When this is done, the program
          renumbers all following questions by incrementing their number.

          Again, a listing of master statements can be obtained by typing
          the '?.'

          Re-arrange Survey Questions (1.3.4)

          You will probably find the need to slightly alter the survey by
          moving a question from one location in the survey to another.
          This can be accomplished by following the prompts which will need
          to know the question number to be moved and the location to move
          it to.  The move to location is always identified by the question
          number before which you want it to reside.  To move a question to
          the end of the survey you will have to delete the question and
          add it over again using sub-option 1.

          Survey Responses (1.4)

          This option allows the entry of responses to the surveys. As
          usual you will be prompted to enter the six character survey code
          Next you enter the class codes (A-F) for any classifications
          which have been designated in the survey header file. You are
          then prompted for the priority order of the ranking statements.
          The system will then prompt you once for each question in the
          survey. After entering the question responses you are given a
          full screen of text entry area for any comments the respondent
          has made. Enter these comments exactly as you would like them to
          appear on a report. The program does not automatically place
          hypens or do word wrapping. You can edit the lines as you enter
          them by using the arrow keys, delete key, etc. Once you have
          accepted these comments they cannot be changed. If no comments
          have been made, press the PgDn key. Once the comments have been
          added, the program asks if you want to add more responses to this
          survey. This cycle will continue until you indicate that no more
          responses exist.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          System Parameters (1.5)

          This option maintains a database which holds your own name and
          address.  Most importantly, though are the print control codes
          and monitor type code.  See the beginning of the Reports Menu
          section for complete details regarding the 12 CPI print control
          sequence. It is important to find this sequence before
          attempting to print any reports (unless you have a wide carriage
          printer). The monitor type code allows you to see a colorful
          screen if you have a color monitor.

          Reports Menu (2.0)

          The reports sub-menu allows you to print your completed survey,
          analysis reports and editing lists.

          After selecting any of the options (except 2.4 & 2.6) you are
          prompted for the survey id code. Then a prompt allows you to
          either print the report or output it to ASCII file (except 2.7
          which only has screen display or file output).

          If you indicate that you want the report output to ASCII file,
          you will be prompted for a valid drive, path and file name.
          If no drive or path is indicated, the file will be placed in
          the current drive and directory. If you leave this prompt blank
          it will result in aborting the report and returning to menu.
          An invalid drive, path or file name will result in the report
          not executing. After placing a report into an ASCII file you
          will need to exit the Survey System and use your word processor
          on it. In this way you can modify it, use special fonts and in
          general create a very custom survey.

          A note about using printers. Most of the reports in this system
          are designed to be printed at 12 Characters Per Inch (CPI).  This
          is because of the large amount of text to be placed on a normal 8
          1/2 X 11 page. Most printers can be made to print in this
          fashion by executing a specific sequence of characters via a
          program. Under the System Parameters (1.5) option there
          exists a field to maintain this 12 CPI control sequence. You
          will need to figure out what the sequence is by browsing your
          printer manual. Enter the entire sequence observing case
          convention into this field and your reports should print
          properly. The default print control characters are for standard
          Epson printers.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Print Distribution Survey (2.1)

          This report prints your finished, or draft, survey. It titles
          it and prints it in generally acceptable format. A footnote
          at the bottom helps clarify the rating scale.

          Summary of Questionnaire (2.2)

          This report prints the summary in normal question number order
          and displays the results of the responses as the total percentage
          of responses at the 5 levels. It will indicate the total number
          of respondents at the upper left of each page.  This can be
          compared to the Total responses column to the far right to
          determine the number of persons not responding to any question.

          Summary of Questionnaire by Class (2.3)

          This is really up to 3 reports in one. At the time that you opt
          to print this report, you will be prompted to enter the class you
          would like to use. The class title will appear in the report
          heading. Each survey question will again be listed numerically
          and responses displayed as percentages of levels. Each question,
          though, will break the responses down by the group within the
          class. The group titles are displayed immediately following the

          Summary of Master Questions (2.4)

          This report performs a similar analysis and output as described
          in section 2.2 above except that it uses all surveys ever. It
          calculated response percentages at each level based upon the
          master question number of the survey. Remember, each time a
          statement is pulled onto a survey the master question number
          is retained. Even though the survey number will invariably
          differ the master number is maintained. When this report is
          run, all responses are sorted by the original master question
          number and ananlysis run against them.

          Comments by Class (2.5)

          Any free form comments that the respondents have made will be
          printed as entered into the computer. These responses can be
          printed using any of the 3 available classes. Whichever class
          you do use will be used to sort the responses and display them by
          one of six possible groups. The Group title will be centered on
          the report page. The comments will be compressed on the page to
          look like one long paragraph, but every fifth one will have a
          line space following it.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Complete List of Master Questions (2.6)

          Occasionally, it may be helpful to have the entire listing of
          questions contained in the master file for editing or reference
          purposes.  This can be easily accomplished with this option.
          Simply have a large supply of paper in the printer and begin the

          Display Ranking Results (2.7)

          If you have included statements on your survey for priority
          ranking by respondents, this option will prove beneficial in
          determining how they stacked up.  Select this option to have the
          number and percentage of the ratings of each statement appear on
          the screen.  The screen also shows the total number of people who
          have made written comments.

          Utilities (3.0)

          Utilities are provided mainly to avoid loss of data should
          a hardware failure occur. If options 3.2, 3.4 and 3.5 do not
          work, it is probably due to lack of adequate memory on your
          computer. Try eliminating memory resident programs.

          Reindex Databases (3.1)

          Occasionally you may have a power outtage which may cause your
          data entry to fail or your reports to appear odd. Or, you may
          find your system becoming inefficient due to a lot of deleted
          records. This option should be able to handle both of these
          situations. It first will go through each database in your
          system and remove any records previously marked for deletion.
          It then reindexes these databases. Run this option as needed
          during heavy system use.

          Copy all Data Files (3.2)

          A quick way to make useable, transferrable copies of your data
          files (maybe to use on another computer with this software)
          is what this option is for. It simply copies all databases
          (.DBF extension) and indexes (.NDX extension) to a floppy
          disk in drive A:.
          SURVEY SYSTEM (Ver 2.0)

          Display List of Files (3.3)

          To determine the size of your database files and to see general
          information about the current system files, select this option.
          It first displays all databases and indicated the number of
          records in each. Then it does a directory of the current directory.

          DOS Backup Data Files (3.4)

          As with all computer systems hardware failure is a definite
          possibility.  The loss of even several hours of data due to lack
          of a backup is a painful experience.  To avoid this happening you
          will want to run option number 3 after each days activity.  You
          should have at least 2 rotating sets of backup diskettes.  You
          will be prompted through this operation.

          DOS Restore Data Files (3.5)

          If you should happen to accidentally wipe out data or complete
          files, or find that a power surge has destroyed the database
          integrity, you will need to restore your data files from the most
          recent copy of your backup diskettes.  First, though, you will
          have to reinstall your survey software, if it has been destroyed.
          Once you are able to operate the Survey System software, you will
          be able to select this option to restore your latest set of back-
          up files.  You will be prompted through this operation.

          from the field survey.  Each record will be a response to a
          question on the survey.  If a survey consists of 35 questions
          there will be 35 of these records for each returned survey.  At
          this point the CLASS, DIVISION, MARKET and OTHER field entries
