How sample survey questions can help

When it comes to analyzing the responses you collect, the questionnaire data is only as good as the questions you’ve asked. A leading question like, “Why don’t you like your job?” assumes an awful lot about your survey participants and may give you inaccurate results. Similarly, if you don’t provide an “Other” option for a question, you may force your survey-takers to pick an answer that doesn’t reflect how they really feel.

We know that one of the reasons you’re choosing to create your survey online instead of on paper is because you want to do less work, not more. And that’s why we created Question Bank, our exclusive library of expert-certified questions on popular survey topics. These methodologically sound questions reduce bias and give you more accurate responses. We make it easy to avoid survey slip-ups because we comply with survey best practices by using expert-certified Likert scales and effective question types.
