Questionnaire Testing and Design

When preparing a data collection questionnaire, it is important that the questions and the questionnaire are well formulated. Clear questions, understandable terms and easy-to-use questionnaire make responding easier and improve the quality of data. They also reduce the need for post-processing of data.

A good question measures what it is meant to measure.
