EvaluATE Preconference Workshops

Survey Fundamentals: Good Data Starts with Good Questions
Preconference Workshop 

Abstract: Surveys are a valuable source for project and evaluation data. However, obtaining quality data relies heavily on well-crafted survey items. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to be strategic and purposeful in their survey creation, considering constructs measured, types of data desired, and analysis required. ATE principal investigators, project and center staff, and evaluators who attend this workshop will learn (1) essential strategies for crafting good survey questions, (2) how to consider data analysis in survey construction, and (3) how to align survey questions with the overall evaluation plan. Participants are encouraged to bring draft surveys from their own projects to review and discuss.

More coming sessions coming soon!
