I’m in the process of migrating a paper questionnaire to CAPI. It has a number of columns marked as “For Official Use Only” that the interviewers were not to fill out. This was done by coders in the office.
Questions marked “for office use only” are typically implemented as a supervisor question to be answered by supervisors.
If the info is not readily available to supervisors, then it is not part of the survey field operations and should be added to data after the survey completes and the data gets exported.
Your screenshot doesn’t reveal much about the process. Are item codes known before the survey or not ? (100001=pork, 100002=beef, etc) or are they coded after all interviews are completed? I think the former. When thinking about the outlets, I think the latter. The quantity is definitely not known to anybody in the office, it is something that must be provided by the interviewer along with the unit.
To me the right panel looks redundant at least for everything except the outlet code.In CAPI you can split this page - the left side stays on paper and is handed to the respondent to be filled out, the right part is what you include into the CAPI system. In that case it is all filled out by the interviewer.
I don’t know what type of code it is, but it is used in teleform to identify the various pages in a template. The teleform server creates it for each page of a multi page template. I cannot remember the name for it.
