Next-Level Survey Analytics

Learn about optimal survey design and the different kinds of analysis you can perform to analyze survey results.


You need to make sure you are not interpreting any results with data you get from unvalidated survey answers. To ensure the survey is measuring what it is intended to measure, you need to introduce different validity types.

Consultative interaction with the Business

To have a bigger impact, you want to know what is happening in each division or department that the survey can address. The consultative process with the business also allows you to better design survey items. Learn how to find out which information stakeholders need instead of what questions they want to ask on the survey. This will allow you to better design survey questions and therefore provide more valuable insights.
