To ensure your research project is a success and help you collect high quality, meaningful data, consider these best practice tips before creating a questionnaire.
It’s essential that every part of an event, from the lead up, to the event itself, and following up with attendees after, runs as smoothly as possible. Using survey software, you can automate your event registration form and send out a personalized follow-up survey to capture useful feedback.
In light of Mental Health Awareness month, which is observed every May, we’ve put together an overview of some best practices when it comes to handling sensitive data gathered in patient surveys, staff surveys, and other health related questionnaires.
Holding an event, whether it’s a large scale conference or internal staff training, involves planning and coordination. You need an accurate headcount, contact details for attendees, and their requirements and preferences, to streamline the planning process. This is where survey software can help; create event booking forms for your website, or send out event invitations, to gather responses and all the details you need to ensure an event’s success.
Before you create a survey, collect data, and start to analyze it, it’s important to consider the best way to share online survey results with your audience. Whether you’re keeping respondents informed, reporting to management and other stakeholders, or you’re conducting research on behalf of a client, the best method for sharing survey results will depend on the audience and what they’re going to do with the information.
With an online survey you can set up email alerts for responses, create analysis and reports to share, or set up accounts for your audience to log in and see live survey information with tailored reports.
