What are examples of bad survey questions?
When people were asked whether they would favor or oppose taking military action in Iraq to end Saddam Hussein's rule, 68% said they favored military action while 25% said they opposed military action. However, when asked whether they would favor or oppose taking military action in Iraq to end Saddam Hussein's rule even if it meant that U.S. forces might suffer thousands of casualties, responses were dramatically different; only 43% said they favored military action, while 48% said they opposed it.
Bad survey questions do not measure what it is you're intending to learn. They're at best unreliable measures and often completely invalid measures. The follow is common in bad survey questions
- Include loaded assumptions "Do you like this beautiful dress I'm wearing"
- Use vague language and are not to the point "What do you think of the president?"
- Don't include all possible answers
- Do not precisely assist in understanding the research topic
- Asks redundant and unnecessary questions
What is the difference between qualitative and quantitative survey questions?
The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he's one who asks the right questions.
Validate your survey/questionnaire
It's impossible to write without bias which is why the greatest challenge lie in creating survey questions which are both valid and reliably measure what we're intending to. If you're a researcher there may be special guidelines for creating a valid survey within your area of research.
