Additional Information:
Survey research is tricky, and there are lots of ways to go wrong. In this workshop, you will learn: 1) about good processes for compiling a survey that will generate accurate, intelligible results; and 2) the most common errors that result in meaningless – or worse, misleading – survey questions. Be prepared to pick apart and rewrite the world’s worst survey questions. If you are working on a survey, bring it along; there will be time for questions and hands-on work.

As part of a professional development series, this workshop is designed for nonprofit professionals, teachers, and school administrators. This workshop will take place from 9 AM - 12 PM.
