A survey instrument is a tool for consistently implementing a scientific protocol for obtaining data from respondents. For most social and behavioral surveys, the instrument involves a questionnaire that provides a script for presenting a standard set of questions and response options. The survey instrument includes questions that address specific study objectives and may also be used to collect demographic information for calculating survey weights. In some surveys, questionnaire responses are augmented by other kinds of measurements derived from instruments, such as lab samples or physical assessments.
A difficult task in creating a questionnaire is translating a researcher’s questions into items that are sufficiently succinct and simple for the respondent to understand and provide accurate answers.
At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:
- understand the overall process of instrument development
- relate the level of measurement (scale) in instrument with different type of statistical analysis
- check the validity and reliability of instrument
- differentiate the Do’s and Dont’s in designing instrument
