QPL Reference Manual

The Data Administrator for a project can use the Reconciliation Report to see how the Administrators have been coding STRING and OPENEND responses. This report shows the full detail of each response and the tags and comments each reviewer applied to that response. A variety of options may be used to focus the report on particular groups of responses or tags. For example, the report can be set to show only responses where particular tags were applied, or to list responses where the reviewers disagreed on the tags they selected, among other options.
