Many researchers, administrators and service providers use surveys to collect data. With the tools available to us, it is easy to create and distribute a survey. However, there are a number of important issues to consider when creating a survey. What is your research question, what will you do with the data that is collected, what decisions or actions will this data guide?
In this session, we will use Qualtrics – our online survey software – to explore the fundamentals of survey creation such as developing a clear plan, creating a Qualtrics account and survey, managing your survey results and tips for good survey design.
Before you attend this workshop, you will need to create a Qualtrics account. To create an account please go to the Qualtrics Account Creation page. You will need to use your University of Guelph central login credentials (same as your UofG email username and password). If you have any issues, please submit a Help Request.
