After interviews, the most common data collection instrument undergraduates turn to is a short survey. This requires them to write a questionnaire. Sounds easy - it's not!

This LQF teaches the art of open and closed questions, how to prompt higher response rates, when and how to use basic Likert scales, and everything else you need to know to get the most out of your questionnaire. A good questionnaire makes all the difference to getting data you can work with and poor research skill here lowers grades.

Reviews for Write a Questionnaire: Little Quick Fix

From a review of both Write A Questionnaire and Do Your Interviews Beautifully written, and chock-full of key information, dealt with in a jargon-free but never condescending way. They initiate a mature understanding of both the practical issues and the human factors at play in both questionnaires and interviewing [..} I would therefore recommend these to undergraduate students and, given the welcoming layout and the clear use of language, I would also recommend them to non-native English speakers learning research skills in English. -- Amanda Haste * *
