Social Survey Design

Need to learn more about Social Survey Design? There are a number of courses available for free as MOOC‘s, such as Coursera, EdX, and Udacity. Student feedback on one in particular, Questionnaire Design for Social Surveys by the University of Michigan:

  • found the course useful because it covered several topics including ordering effects, satisfying, sensitive questions and more. However, I also have no background in this subject so I don’t know how useful it would be to someone who knows the topic.
  • Includes discussion forums (not very helpful), video lectures (helpful), and an assignment where you created questions and then received feedback on their usefulness and effectiveness (found very helpful).
