Survey Design for Outcomes Assessment

With increasing emphasis on outcomes measurements, nonprofits are searching for ways to demonstrate their program's impact.  Surveys can be a useful tool to collect feedback from clients, employees, and/or stakeholders.  The importance of clearly articulating the purpose of the survey and how the results will be used are critical aspects of focusing survey design.  This workshop will introduce participants to using surveys as a data collection technique.  At the end of this workshop, participants will feel more confident with their abilities to create surveys to meet the information needs of their organizations.

Learning Objectives
- Focus data collection efforts
- Identify principles of good survey design
- Develop survey questions aligned to organization's needs
