7/02/2012 Survey lesson

Today in the lesson we learnt about survey's and the different type questions that can be found in them. There are two different categories of questions: demographic, which ask basic information e.g. name, age, gender; and then psychographics, within this category there are four types of questions, likerts, multiple choice, open questions and rating.
 Likerts are questions that give you the option to tick 1 of 5 boxes. the boxes are "like a lot", "like a bit", "don't know", "don't like" or "really dislike".
Multiple choice questions give you choice to choose from a range of answers.
An open question is one where the person doing the survey gets tp answer the question with their own words and its allows them the chance to give their opinion.
Rating questions are similar to likerts, you must rate several options in order of preference or importance to you, 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest.

This lesson gave us to further understanding of how surveys are created, so that when it comes to making our own we now know to include questions of all types and how to word those questions.
