This course will look at good practice in questionnaire design. It will examine aspects of surveys such as how researchers can design them so as to make them attractive to their target respondents, how researchers can ask specific “awkward” questions in a way that will encourage responses and how researchers can structure questions to achieve clarity and avoid multiple purposes in a single question. It will also look at how to choose the best method of distributing your survey and how to get the right people to answer it.
No prior knowledge is required for this course. However, for those interested in taking things further, there is a follow-on “Sample Size and Power” course for which prior knowledge of basic statistics such as mean, variance, standard deviation and confidence intervals is required.
