Surveys are popular assessment tools to understand users’ needs and perceptions because they are easy and quick to use. In spite of the convenience and popularity, it is hard to have a well-designed survey. In this webinar, presenter Jung Mi Scoulas, the Assessment Coordinator of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Library will share her experiences and lessons learned from consultations over the years, as well as practical tips:
- When and how to use surveys (e.g., using surveys to demonstrate the library’s impact on students’ academic success)
- Survey flow (e.g., where to add demographic questions; the order of questions) and length
- Response options (e.g., yes/no or Likert Scale)
- Rules and policies (e.g., user privacy and accessibility)
The presenter will use the examples of the surveys that she has developed and used in her university library consultations. This presentation targets any library staff who are involved in assessment or want to improve their skills in developing surveys as an assessment tool. During the Q&A, attendees will have an opportunity to share their experiences and tips in developing surveys with others. This webinar is geared towards cataloging and metadata staff.
