Survey Examples

The PIEL Survey can be used in many settings. Some sample Control Files are shown here to illustrate how the PIEL Survey app can be used. We thank the developers of these surveys for allowing us to make these Control Files available for the benefit of future users.

You can import these files into the PIEL Survey app from the browser by tapping on the link below on a mobile device then opening the downloaded file in the PIEL Survey app. The PIEL Survey must already be installed on your device. Please note that if the survey is a scheduled survey, and first schedule for today is in the past, the survey will not start until the next scheduled day.

If you wish to look at the text of the surveys, the easiest way is to download the file onto your computer and open it with a text editor.

Please respect the copyright (if any) of each survey. These are purely for training purposes and researchers should develop and be responsible for their own surveys. It should also be noted that by allowing us to provide these examples, the researchers are not necessarily advocating the use of the PIEL survey.

We have removed the author email and other private items from the files and entered an unidentifiable participant id.
