I’m so proud to announce that Designing Quality Survey Questions will be available a bit later this month!
Sheila B. Robinson and I have been working on this text for several years — which likely explains why this blog has been rather quiet. We are thrilled to share it with anyone and everyone remotely interested in survey design! Sheila and I began our collaboration in 2012 with a twitter conversation and the realization that we shared both frustration about the existence of SO MUCH poor survey design work, and a desire to help researchers do better.
This book is a handy reference for the researcher who develops surveys regularly and a great introduction to survey design for the novice or amateur survey developer. One of the features we are most excited about is a checklist to help ensure the quality of survey questions. More information about the book is available through Sage Publications.
