A questionnaire defines the kind of data you will be able to collect for your PhD research making a designing plan important.
A research questionnaire is one of the common data collection tools which can be used for almost any subject domain. Questionnaire designing is important as these questions are used to collect the data on which the research and its result depend. These questions need to be curated carefully in order to fit the research purpose and to cover the areas which are important for the research and directly related to it. As there are different types of data like Collection
Different types of data like qualitative data, quantitative data and mixed data differ from each other which is why the data collection methods need to be adjusted accordingly. For example, using open ended or close ended questions, preferring online or offline mode of data collection and so on needs to be decided accordingly.
Next step is to go through the collected data and sort it out based on the answers and feedback received. This becomes necessary as some respondents miss out on some questions or do not actively participate in explanatory questions. This leads to an inappropriate interpretation later on.
After sorting, it becomes easier to clean the collected data based on its relevance to the research. The inappropriate data or responses can be disregarded to fit the research requirements. The cleaning process can be a bit time consuming as most of the time it is done manually; however, the accuracy of final data gets enhanced as well.
Lastly, the finalised data goes through a reliability test which shows the relevance of the data and how trustworthy it is in quantitative terms. Only the data which shows a good scope in accordance with the research purpose and desired result goes through the analysis process with the help of softwares like SPSS, NVivo, Thematic and so on as per the data type. and quantitative, the research questions need to be prepared accordingly.
A questionnaire must have the following qualities to be considered good.
The questions need to be directly related to the research to draw better conclusions instead of interpreting their relation with the research.
Before designing a questionnaire, it is important to have no bias at all as it can affect the scope and focus of the research
The questions or their answers should not be vague in understanding. Whether the answers define constants or variables, it should be clearly stated.
There has to be an order between the questions. While planning a questionnaire one must follow a chronological order in which the events or questions need to be asked.
The questions should be interesting. This makes the research and the data finding process smoother.
Research does not depend on questions which cannot be answered. Therefore, choose the questions whose answers can be derived by certain measures without overcomplicating it.
Our team of experts in Mahrashtra design the questionnaire which provides effective results for the chosen research topic and methodology. These questions are planned keeping the objective of the research in mind and understanding the key area of concern. The rating scales, question types and other reliability factors are also considered while planning the questionnaire.
The format of the questionnaire designed by our team in Mumbai, Pune, Nashik, Aurangabad, Nagpur is based on studies and tested techniques. It is important that the format of the questionnaire does not get complex when it comes to the data integration process. Our experts prepare a priority checklist according to which the questions are formatted and used in the questionnaire.
Instead of taking references from other sources or search options, our team plans a conceptualised unique framework for designing your questionnaire. Considering that every research work has a different purpose and focus, the questionnaire must also has a different approach to target the research goal.
