CREATING & ADMINISTERING
STEP 1: Identifying Information
You Are Looking For
Make a list of the information your group
would like to receive from the survey (4).
Write down what your goals are for each piece of information
and why finding it out is necessary. Ask yourselves what
is most important for you to find out. This will help you
narrow down what to ask and which questions to use. Often
times a survey becomes too long and you will need to cut
out many questions. Taking the
time to prioritize the information you are looking for will
help if you need to shorten your survey.Prioritize
things that give you information to support your argument
and the goals of your campaign.
Take time editing and re-editing the list.
