Designing Surveys for Collecting Program Evaluation Data

  • Aug. 31, 2021
  • 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Some programs have a common survey tool for evaluating, but many do not. How do you build a survey that is useful and what type of questions should you include?

The type of training program or activity will determine which survey tool to use. For the purpose of training evaluation, Extension programs and activities can be broadly divided into four categories: 

 1. Short training sessions (One-time educational activity or presentation conducted within 2 hours or less) 

 Example: A training workshop on soil sampling or healthy lifestyle education 

 2. Long training sessions (One-time educational activity or presentation that is at least longer than 2 hours) 

 Example: Food safety training for food service employees 

 3. Multi-session training programs (Educational program presented in series to an audience for more than once over an extended period of time) 

 Example: a) 4-H club activities 

 b) Nutrition and exercise education programs 

 4. Train-the-Trainer training programs 

 Example: Master Gardener volunteer training
