Workshop: Scale Development for Surveys

On a scale of 1 to 7, how confident are you in your scale design skills?

Surveys are a staple of evaluators’ tool boxes, and this is an opportunity to sharpen your tools! This intermediate workshop presents common pitfalls in designing survey scales and how to repair them. Information is presented in a plenary format with hands on opportunities for participants to engage with the content. Facilitators will present strategies for determining scale length, scale labeling, and item response category order grounded in research and best practice. Participants will come away with practical ways to enhance their survey scale design skills.
