Surveys are often a key element of evaluation practice, but are increasingly challenged by the multitudes of surveys simultaneously in the field, each fighting for the attention of their respondents. For a survey to get buy-in, it needs to have a point of difference over others in the field, and be credible in the data it gathers.

More about this workshop

This workshop will help people design surveys that are engaging, credible and trustworthy. Over two online sessions we will explore:

* Why survey design matters

* Common pitfalls in survey design

* Key elements of good survey question design

* Options for survey data collection

* Survey fatigue and alternatives to surveys


Participants will interactively learn about the promise and perils of survey design, have opportunities to design and test survey questions, and explore options for implementing surveys. On completing the workshop, participants will be able to look more critically at survey practice and apply learning from the session to their own work.
