Module for converting Instruments to and from RIOS

Project description

RIOS.CONVERSION is a Python package that supports converting research instruments in various formats to and from RIOS data structures.

The following APIs have been implemented:

  • redcap_to_rios

    Converts a REDCap Data Dictionary format to the RIOS Instrument, Form, and CalculationSet format.

  • rios_to_redcap

    Converts a RIOS Instrument, Form, and CalculationSet to the REDCap Data Dictionary format.

  • qualtrics_to_rios

    Converts a Qualtrics data dictionary to the RIOS Instrument and Form format.

  • rios_to_qualtrics

    Converts a RIOS Instrument, Form, and CalculationSet to the Qualtrics format.

Import these functions for use:

>>> from rios.conversion import (
>>>     redcap_to_rios,
>>>     qualtrics_to_rios,
>>>     rios_to_redcap,
>>>     rios_to_qualtrics,
>>> )


The question order, text, and associated enumerations, are all converted correctly; however the converted expressions used for “calculated fields” and “skip logic”, as well as the display niceties of section breaks and separators will most likely require some “tweaking” because the various systems model pages, events and actions differently.

For example a RIOS calculation is an expression applied to an assessment, independently of the data collection, while a REDCap “calculated field” is a read-only field which evaluates its expression and displays the result during data collection.
