Several organizations use in-house surveys for their employees and external surveys for their customers and suppliers to illustrate a situation, to assess the importance of a need (for example: training), or the satisfaction towards a service, to verify a number of hypotheses and to predict a behavior.  Surveys are becoming an essential tool for organizations to obtain the information needed.  Academics of college and universities and graduate students are avid users of surveys and related tools for their research.

This workshop is offered to the conference participants interested to be introduced or get a fast understanding on the appropriate methodology to elaborate a questionnaire and broadcast it thru the Internet. 

During this workshop, participants will discuss the best practices in questionnaires construction:

2. The section will present different layouts of questions and provide hints on the appropriate wording to avoid common mistakes and bias

3. What are the choices of questions? And what is easier for the respondents?
