It seems that someone put a great deal of thought and effort into this. And a certain amount of prior information about the phenomenon is implied simply by knowing which questions to ask.

A person is left wondering if this form was used, and if so, where the reports it generated are now? Is there a practicle way to request all of the answers to this form?
