What is Survey Monkey? • SurveyMonkey is an online survey generator created to help users create a quality survey. • This tutorial will guide you through the process necessary for creating a survey.
Survey Best Practices • Establish a goal - Have a goal for the survey. For example: • If the survey is a post-course evaluation tool, the goal should reflect the desire to learn how to improve the course • If the Survey is intended to determine what students know, establish a set of entry behaviors, and draft the survey to determine id those behaviors are present • If the survey is a tool for data collection, ask questions about the specific topic
Survey Best Practices • Strive for clarity - When conducting a survey, it is important to ask questions that have clear, concise answer choices. Instead of yes or no responses, offer a variety of choices that will provide relevant feedback • Keep it simple – Keep the number of questions to a minimum. Ask questions that will provide the feedback that you need, and nothing more.
Survey Best Practices • Allow for opinion – Use the essay question option to explain answers or add an opinion. This gives the respondent an opportunity to provide specific feedback to questions that Likert Scale does not provide. • Review and Revise Have a colleague take the survey. • Talk with them about your goals for the survey and if they survey, in their opinion, meets those gals • Discuss the questions and responses to ensure that questions are understood • Review response choices to determine if they effectively answer the survey question

Skip Logic • Add logic: • Page skip logic (unconditional logic) will customize the path through your survey, without needing responses to questions. In other words, if you have a survey question that does not require an answer, the responder can skip to the next question. • Question skip logic (conditional logic) requires that the question be answered. In addition, the answer to the question determines the next question. For example, If the question has a YES or NO answer, a YES answer can move to the responder to next question, and a NO answer can let the responder skip the next question. • Do not use Question and Page skip logic on the same page
Skip Logic • When to Use Question Skip Logic: If you want to set up skip logic so that respondents will be asked some follow-up questions based on their response to a particular question, then you will want to place skip logic on a question. When you place skip logic on a question, it is generally a good idea to have this question as the last question on a survey page. Then you could place your follow-up question(s) on a separate page immediately following the current page. Your skip logic rule should be set up so that the respondents who do not choose the specific answer you are looking for will skip over the page of follow-up questions when they click “Next >>.”
Skip Logic • When to Use Page Skip Logic: If you have more than one group of follow-up questions and only want respondents to answer one group depending on their answer to a particular question, then you will want to create separate pages - one for each group of questions. This time, if respondents get sent to the first page of follow-up questions because of the way they answered your question, you do not want them to continue to the second page of follow-up questions. This is where you would want to place skip logic on the page. You could set up skip logic on this page so that when the respondents clicked “Next >>” they will skip over the other pages of follow-up questions and continue with the survey.
