    • Claim:
      1.-4. (canceled)
    • Claim:
      5. A data request system, comprising:a web server, configured for a researcher or other user to create multiple data tables for a study;a first data table, comprising a first data request including one or more items including: one or more questions, a request to take an action, or an instruction to record data from a sensor;a second table, comprising one or more trigger conditions to control one or more data request items;a third table, designating individual participants participating in the study, and mobile personal computing devices associated with corresponding participants;a transport file, assembling at least the first and second tables, for download to a particular participant device designated in the third table, such that an application installed on the participant device downloads the transport file and configures the device to control one or more items in the first table when one or more trigger conditions specified in the second table are determined to have been met.
    • Claim:
      6. The system of claim 5, wherein the server is configured to gather one or more related questions or one or more requests into one or more titled surveys.
    • Claim:
      7. The system of claim 6, wherein the application is configured to present to the participant a list of one or more surveys that currently meet the one or more trigger conditions.
    • Claim:
      8. The system of claim 7, wherein the application is configured to remove a survey from the list when it no longer meets at least one trigger condition.
    • Claim:
      9. The system of claim 7, wherein the application is configured to remove a survey from the list within at least one of a specified ending date and time or duration.
    • Claim:
      10. The system of claim 5, wherein the device is configured to record at least one of the date or time at which a trigger condition was met.
    • Claim:
      11. The system of claim 5, wherein the device is configured to record the location of the device when at least one trigger condition was met.
    • Claim:
      11. The system of claim 7, wherein the device is configured to record at least one of a date or time when the participant selects a survey from the list.
    • Claim:
      12. The system of claim 5, wherein the device is configured to record at least one of a date or time at which an item in the data request is started.
    • Claim:
      13. The system of claim 5, wherein the device is configured to record at least one of the date or time at which an item in the data request is completed.
    • Claim:
      14. A method of creating and administering data requests, the method comprising:creating one or more data tables on a web server to hold information describing one or more of a data request, a participant, a participant device, or return data;identifying one or more participants and associating a personal computing device with an individual participant having access of that device;creating a data request comprising at least one item of a survey including one or more questions, a request to take an action, or data to be recorded from a sensor;configuring one or more triggers for each item in the data request to control the item on the participant device;writing the data request and one or more triggers into a transport file for download to the device associated with the intended participant;downloading the transport file to the participant device with an application installed on the device;unpacking the transport file;registering the triggers on the participant device; andcontrolling each item in the data request in response to a determination that one or more conditions specified by the trigger associated with that item have been met.
    • Claim:
      15. The method of claim 14, further comprising gathering one or more related questions or requests into one or more named surveys.
    • Claim:
      16. The method of claim 15, further comprising placing the one or more surveys that currently meet at least one trigger condition in a list presented to the participant in the application.
    • Claim:
      17. The method of claim 16, further comprising removing one or more surveys from the list that no longer meet at least one trigger condition.
    • Claim:
      18. The method of claim 16, further comprising removing one or more surveys from the list within at least one of a specified beginning date or time or at least one of a specified ending date or time.
    • Claim:
      19. The method of claim 14, further comprising recording at least one of a date or time when a trigger condition was met.
    • Claim:
      20. The method of claim 14, further comprising recording the location of the device when a trigger condition is met.
    • Claim:
      21. The method of claim 14, further comprising recording at least one of a presentation date or time at which a question in the survey is presented to the participant and at least one of a completion date or time at which the participant completes a response to the presented item.
