Issuing a survey is not just a simple case of making some questions up and asking people to complete your survey. A good survey will take time to develop and test if you want the data to give you the information you want for your research. This workshop will introduce you to the basic considerations of survey design.
This workshop will cover:
- Question types - what types of question can you ask to get the best information
- Factors impacting a response - how the type of question can affect the response rate you get
- What do you want to find out - how to ask the right questions
- Considerations for design to aid analysis - thinking about how you will analyse your data
- Delivering a survey - factors involved, such as layout, length, testing
An additional workshop is available which will introduce you to a University licenced survey tool (JISC Online Surveys) on how to create an online survey. This workshop will run on Monday 25th March so check our workshop programme for full details.
