Things to Consider When Learning How to Make a Survey

Learning how to make a survey effective isn't difficult, but still requires you to implement a few general concepts. Keep the following points in mind as your travelling through the survey creation process:

Questions

When learning how to make a survey, it's a good idea to keep your questions focused on one particular subject. Trying to cover too many topics on just one survey may not yield the most in-depth responses from participants. Once you determine the topic, try and examine the survey from an overall perspective, so that you can create some sort of logical flow. It's also a good idea to keep questions pithy, and not have your participants spending the majority of time reading - instead they should be thinking about their answers, the real data you're looking for.

Answers

Depending on what sort of data you need will determine what sort of answer options you should provide for respondents. For example, if you're conducting a customer service survey, one question could be rating scale of 0-5 to give you more quantitative information, and another question could be an open text box to provide more qualitative information. In addition, it's important to think carefully about the kinds of answer options you provide - they might not always represent the true feelings of the survey participant.

Distribution

Think about the type of data you wish to receive and who exactly you want to reach. For example, sending survey via Facebook to a particular demographic that may not be technologically savvy might pose a few problems. If you're still learning how to create a survey and attain effective feedback, you can always browse QuestionPro's blog for useful articles containing tips, tricks and ideas to help brainstorm an effective approach.
