    Wording questions For the creation of questionnaire questions

    Author: Rolf Porst

    The field of pretesting

    The book deals with the rules for formulating questions, items and answer categories in Social Science questionnaires. These rules refer to basic aspects of the formulation of questions and are applicable to all forms of questioning (personal, verbal, by telephone, written).

  • Introduction
  • Survey tip 1: Use simple, unambiguous terms, which can be understood by all respondents in the same way!
  • Survey tip 2: Avoid long and complex questions!
  • Survey tip 3: Avoid hypothetical questions!
  • Survey tip 4: Avoid stimuli and negatives!
  • Survey tip 5: Avoid assumptions and suggestive questions!
  • Survey tip 6: Avoid questions which target information to which many respondents probably don't have access!
  • Survey tip 7: Use questions with a clear temporal reference!
  • Survey tip 8: Use answer categories which are exhaustive and disjointed (free from overlap)!
  • Survey tip 9: Make sure that the context of a question does not have an (uncontrolled) effect on the answer!
  • Survey tip 10: Define unclear terms!
  • Book tip: Questionnaires a practical guide
