Join us for this two-part session about how to craft and analyze effective surveys!
Part 1: Survey Design
Surveys have become omnipresent in nonprofit evaluation. Learn how to write better surveys, generate more informative responses, and get more bang for your evaluation buck!
A well-written survey generates substantive, actionable data. Part 1 will help participants design high-quality surveys by teaching them when surveys are most appropriate, key principles for writing survey questions, principles of structuring surveys, and how-to tips on survey distribution. Participants will be guided through interactive activities to help practice and hone their survey skills.
Part 2: Survey Analysis
You’ve written a great survey and collected a of bunch responses—now what? Learn basic survey analysis skills in this interactive session. We will focus on how to distill key messages from each survey question type.
In Part 2, you will understand what to do with the data they’ve just collected. We will identify where automated analysis within survey programs can lead you astray, and focus on the best way to get the key message out of each question type, whether a data visualization or analytical approach. We will talk about fixed response questions, select all that apply questions, numerical response, rating questions, short open-ended questions, and long open-ended questions. Participants will be guided through interactive activities to help practice and hone their analysis skills.
