English translation:self-administered questionnaire
Explanation:
A self-administered questionnaire is a questionnaire filled out by a person without assistance. The following excerpt is an abstract on the topic:


TOWARDS A THEORY OF SELF-ADMINISTERED QUESTIONNAIRE DESIGN
Cleo R. Jenkins, Don A. Dillman
KEY WORDS: Questionnaire design, Visual perception, Self-administered questionnaires
ABSTRACT
Although recommendations for the design of self-administered questionnaires have been offered, few systematic efforts have been made to derive principles of design from relevant psychological or sociological theories. Our purpose in this paper is to contribute to the development of a theory for designing self-administered questionnaires. We draw from two particularly applicable disciplines--cognition, especially as it applies to visual perception, and motivation. Concepts such as pattern recognition and the Gestalt perceptual laws are utilized to propose several principles for design, thus extending our work from a previous paper. The principles are categorized into achieving good information organization and designing respondent navigational guides. Information organization refers to the choice of words for formulating questions and answers and the prescribed sequence in which respondents are expected to process them. Navigational guides refers to the means used to encourage respondents to follow a prescribed path through the questionnaire. Illustrations of the application of these principles are provided. Finally, we present results from an initial test of a U.S. Census questionnaire that adheres to the principles described here.

looks like "selfcompleting" or "to be completed by thesurveyed party"


Explanation:
The word in spanish seems to be invented by the people doing the survey. It refers to the section of the survey to be filled out by the surveyed party, as opposed to the sections that are filled out by the surveyors.

SELF-FULFILLMENT


Explanation:
'AUTO IS always 'self' and 'cumplimentacion' has to do with 'filling'. So, if you look at them together, I would say, 'self-fulfillment' making it a psychological medical survey. (only the form that it is in is repulsive grammar wise)

self-evaluation


Explanation:
Ask the people to fill out individually the sheet of self-evaluation.

I wold say self-evaluation because it is about a survey.

Nevertheless, it's horrible Spanish!!!!

Hope this helps! :)

"fill out" & "survey"


Explanation:
Check out this definition found in Diccionario de Español Actual - Manuel Seco, Olimpia Andrés y Gabino Ramos:
cumplimentar- Escribir en un impreso los datos que en él se piden.

Therefore I suggest:
Ask them to individually fill out the survey.... or if you don´t want to use the word survey, I think you could say: fill out the form.

Good luck ;)

Suerte

: a survey sheet that fills itself up (easy-to-answer, for instance)


Explanation:
in the sense that one probably punches out pre-cut sections of the form or makes impressions on it which can be tallied by machine. (Such forms are periodically used in Europe when the survey is made in the street where people are not likely to have a pen on them.)
To verify, you could ask what type of form the survey will be printed on.

self-filled questionnaire


Explanation:
ENGLISH VERSION
Measurements and results. A ****self-filled questionnaire**** was used. The items involving behaviour through which the virus was not transmitted, and for which the knowledge, worry and fear generated were evaluated, were described analytically. Items concerning discriminatory attitudes were analysed. Although we detected a lack of knowledge, the worry and fear generated by each situation was greater. In over 75% of those polled we observed discriminatory attitudes
SPANISH VERSION

Análisis de los ítems referentes a actitudes de discriminación. Aunque detectamos una falta de conocimientos, es mayor la preocupación y el miedo generados ante cada situación.
