Modern Survey Question Design


Surveys are an easy and effective way to get feedback from people interacting with your program or organization. 

But the key to meaningful results starts with clear and well-crafted questions.

Join Wilder Research to take a deep dive into writing meaningful survey questions that get you the information you need.

We’ll cover:

  • Designing effective survey questions tailored to your evaluation purpose
  • Best practices for asking sensitive survey questions
  • How to write inclusive and accessible questions

You’ll have the opportunity to practice designing your own survey questions on topics that are meaningful to your work.

Attendees should bring a current or previous survey or a topic they would like to design a survey around.

Cost: $100

About the workshop series

Evaluation is one way for your organization to reflect on your work, make changes to better achieve the outcomes you want, and communicate the impact of your work to funders and other stakeholders.

Wilder Research evaluation workshops help build or polish your evaluation skills and equip you with the tools and resources to do evaluation at your organization.

Who should attend?

These trainings are for nonprofit, foundation, and government staff and volunteers who are interested in building a foundational set of skills in program evaluation. Whether you already use some evaluation tools in your work or have no experience with evaluation, we’ll showcase practical approaches for incorporating evaluation into your work.
