Within EpiCollect+ the definition of a project is focussed around one or more forms, containing one or more questions (which can be text or media fields).
The Form definition is at the heart of your data gathering project. To demonstrate we shall firstly describe a simple, single Form Project, then the types of questions you can specify (text and media) and how to define logic and validation, and then we will describe how you can link forms together in a hierarchy and or by defining branching forms.
To do this we shall imagine a hypothetical project where we are undertaking a survey of schools.
Initially, we will specify a single form aimed at gathering information about a set of schools. Further on we will demonstrate how to link forms detailing the teachers within each of the the schools and also assign the pupils to their teachers within the multiple schools).
Here we will define a single form, and detail the kinds of questions you may wish to use in your project. Please note that the schools project is simply for demonstration purposes and to describe the generality of functions within EpiCollect+. However, you can apply the same principals to any sort of data gathering project.
