Write a Questionnaire

Write a Questionnaire
Little Quick Fix

First Edition

© 2019 | 124 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

After interviews, the most common data collection instrument undergraduates turn to is a short survey. This requires them to write a questionnaire. Sounds easy – it’s not! 

This LQF teaches the art of open and closed questions, how to prompt higher response rates, when and how to use basic Likert scales, and everything else you need to know to get the most out of your questionnaire.  A good questionnaire makes all the difference to getting data you can work with and poor research skill here lowers grades.

1. How do I know I should use questionnaires in my research project?
2. What are the practicalities of using questionnaires?
3. What kinds of questions should I use?
4. How do I find people to fill in my questionnaires?
5. Why do I need to test my questionnaire?
6. How can I improve my response rate?
7. What do I do when I have all my completed questionnaires?
