Surveys are key tools for evaluating training programs. Surveys are revered for their ease of use and promise of reaching many, but we must be able to craft rich, concise, and focused questions that yield useful data. For this, we must understand the cognitive processes our respondents use to answer questions with accuracy and candor.
With rich examples and an interactive approach, Sheila will demonstrate why we must engage in a respondent-centered and research-based survey design process to craft high quality questions. Participants will increase their understanding of how to design high quality surveys and leave with resources for further skill development.

Floyd Fowler, preeminent survey researcher, claims, “Poor [survey] question design is pervasive, and improving questions design is one of the easiest, most cost-effective steps that can be taken to improve the quality of survey data.”
