Seminar Description

In this class, Adrienne Zell Ph.D. will present the most common questions regarding survey design and administration - and provide the answers!

Topics we will cover include: 

  • Writing great survey questions
  • Choosing previously validated questions
  • Selecting survey software and administration methods
  • Maximizing response rates
  • Budgeting for your survey
  • Designing your survey to facilitate data analysis
  • Piloting your survey.

We will also touch on key regulatory issues and give some tips for developing a communications plan to accompany your survey. Although this is not a study design class, we will also provide some options for alternatives to surveys and briefly discuss the use of surveys in mixed-methods research.
