Questionnaire design - QuestDevelopTM

Questionnaire design is both a science and an art. We work closely with you providing end-to-end support - from identifying your survey objectives through to designing and evaluating the questionnaire - to ensure your questionnaire collects the information you want to collect.

Cognitive testing

Survey questions are not always interpreted in the way we intend which can affect the validity and accuracy of the survey. Cognitive testing improves data collection tools, like questionnaires and diaries, ensuring the best quality data.

Whether you are developing a questionnaire from the start or want to improve the performance of an existing questionnaire, we draw on our expertise in think-aloud and concurrent and retrospective verbal probing to ensure the functioning of your questionnaire is fully optimised.

Qualitative research

While Big Data is the current buzz word for finding trends and patterns from massive amounts of data, it’s essential to bring qualitative knowledge and understanding to complement quantitative data. Indeed, some of the deepest insights come from just listening and observing what people say and do. Our experise includes:

  • In-depth interviews and focus groups
  • Qualitative data analysis
  • Immersion workshops
  • Co-design
  • Carousel Groups
  • Observation
