A well-written survey generates substantial, actionable data. Design high-quality surveys by understanding:

  • When surveys are most appropriate

  • Key principles for writing surveys

  • Best practices of structuring surveys

  • How-to tips on survey distribution

This training can also be combined with content on survey analysis.

Designing & Conducting Qualitative Evaluations

Sometimes, we get the most illuminating, rich information from going out and talking with people!

  • Learn how to design and conduct interviews and focus groups to make the best use of time for everyone involved.

  • Understand the process for designing and conducting interviews and focus groups from start to finish, including selecting a topic (and what makes a good topic for interviews or focus groups), writing questions, facilitation skills and grasping the nuts and bolts of interview and focus group logistics.

This training can also be combined with content on qualitative analysis.
