Designing a Survey

Design a survey to gather data about your topic of interest. The survey should contain at least 10 items.

  • Explain the construct you are attempting to measure for each question. Be sure it is clear to your reader what type of response is required (multiple choice, drop-down, rating scale, et cetera), and that the design of the questions is appropriate for quantitative research.
  • Describe the purpose of the survey, then describe a study appropriate for survey design, with research questions that can be answered by the survey you created. Discuss the appropriate analysis for this study.
