Recently, L&E Research hosted a webinar with guest speaker David F. Harris, Founder of Insight & Measurement. David is the author of, The Complete Guide to Writing Questionnaires: How to Get Better Information for Better Decisions.
David wrote his book to address the following concerns about market research and questionnaires:
- Research is rarely organized to support decision making
- Often, no qualitative research is conducted prior to questionnaire development
- Questions are often unclear, biased, or not answerable by the respondent
- Questionnaire pretesting is not practiced widely enough
Take the time and struggle out of writing screeners and start getting the right respondents for your qualitative research.

Management does not want to invest in high-quality research. Respondents don’t want to participate, and if they do participate, it is challenging to get them to give valuable information. Sometimes it seems as if insight is as rare as hen’s teeth.Read more >
Everyone knows how important it is to keep questionnaires short, especially with so many respondents now taking surveys on mobile devices. If the questionnaire is too long, respondents drop out or start making up answers to get to the end. Well-written, shorter questionnaires mean better data at a lesser cost.Read more >
