Write a strong survey instrument using evidence-based practices

12:00 - 1:00 pm

Register: http://ispibay.org/event-2633619

Struggling with designing meaningful surveys? Not getting the data you need? Perplexed about how to write ‘good’ surveys?

During our webinar, we’ll look at measuring responses. One of the most popular response scales used in survey design is the Likert scale. Some people use a five-point Likert scale consisting of Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Neutral, Agree, and Strongly Agree. Some people use a four-point Likert scale excluding the midpoint while others use a five point.

• Do you include or exclude the midpoint, and why?

• If you include a midpoint, how do you think respondents interpret and use a midpoint?

• If you exclude a midpoint, how do you analyze the ordinal data and how does it affect the reliability of the data?

We’ll also look at writing statements (survey items).

• Do you design all statements to be worded positively, or do you use a mix of positively and negatively worded statements? Why?

• If you use a mixed format, which wording (e.g., not clear or unclear) should you use to design negatively worded statements? How does it affect the reliability of the data?

If you have designed a survey based on your preferences without knowing exactly why it should be done that way, this webinar will help you find some answers to the why questions.

We took a deep dive into the literature to see what the research could tell us about designing valid and reliable surveys. We reviewed over 40 research articles to find research-supported answers to the questions about Likert scale midpoints and positively/negatively stated survey items.

Join us to find out what we learned about these design factors! This webinar will provide evidence-based considerations and recommendations for stronger survey design that you’ll be able to put in practice immediately.
