All custom OutcomTools surveys must have the following:

  • A completed and scored original copy of the survey* (scanned or electronic) so that BestNotes knows what it was designed to look like and how it should be completed. This also gives us sample responses/scores so that we can validate our version with your version.
  • Complete scoring details.
  • Copyright information and license details (who owns it, how much does it cost?, etc.)


  • PDF version of survey for paper data collection

*Completed & Scored Surveys:

Sending completed surveys help determine the beginning to end picture and gives BestNotes something to validate against. Scoring details are critical so that we can create the output you need. Unless a copyright/license restricts it, we also like to include a clean PDF version of the survey in the Resources area of OutcomeTools, so that customers can have a paper version if needed for data collection.
