In this short intensive session we will provide the highlights of the “Effective Questionnaire Design” session that is normally run for the Graduate School. How to design a questionnaire, what are the dos and don’ts, and how to make sure that you can publish from your results.
For a basic introduction of how questionnaires might be useful (for example to measure learning gain), see:
Rogaten, Jekaterina; Rienties, Bart; Sharpe, Rhona; Cross, Simon; Whitelock, Denise; Lygo-Baker, Simon and Littlejohn, Allison (2019). Reviewing affective, behavioural, and cognitive learning gains in higher education.Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 44(3) pp. 321–337.
For an in-depth and advanced insight into the merits of questionnaires relative to objective data, see:
