Online Survey Building Tools
One good resource for creating a survey questionnaire is online survey building tools. A Google, Bing, or Yahoo search throws up many such survey sites, both free and paid, but by far the most popular one is Surveymonkey.com.
The process of creating questionnaires using Surveymonkey.com is simple. Just create an account, design the survey, send the survey to the target, and wait for responses to come before viewing the ready-made analysis. Surveymonkey requires either a Google or Facebook account, making the sign up simpler.
The first step in creating a survey using Surveynmonkey.com is designing the survey. Surveymonkey provides a host of functionality such as selecting the background theme, creating new pages, and selecting the type of questions. The functionalities come with many options. For instance, the options under “create a question" include multiple choices with many/one answer, text box answers, rating scale, matrix of choices, demographic information and so on.
The next step is to add the actual questions. Clicking on “done" creates a link to the ready made survey!
Use the “collect response" option to send the link of the survey to the target people, embed the link in a website, create a custom list of email addresses, or share the survey on Facebook. Each option requires configuration of the desired setting. For instance, when opting to embed the survey in a web page, identify the size of the embodiment.
The “analyze response" options allow for viewing the response, and include options such as rating averages, and response count. The more advanced options to filer, download, PDF reports, print, and share the response with others comes with the paid “Pro" version of the software. The basic free account has some limitations, such as a maximum of ten questions and 100 responses per survey.
