What is Questionnaire?

          A questionnaire is a research tool used to collect data from a group of people through a series of questions. It is a way to gather information about people’s attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and experiences on a particular topic. Questionnaires can be administered in a variety of ways, such as online, by phone, or in person, and can be designed to be completed by individuals or by groups.

There are several types of questions that can be used in a questionnaire, including:

         Open-ended questions: These are questions that allow respondents to provide a written response in their own words. They are useful for gathering detailed information and opinions, but can be more time-consuming to analyze.

          Closed-ended questions: These are questions that provide a fixed set of response options for respondents to choose from. They are easier to analyze, but may not provide as much detail as open-ended questions.

          Multiple-choice questions: These are questions that provide a list of options for respondents to select from. They can be either open- or closed-ended, depending on whether an “other” or “none of the above” option is included.

          Rating scale questions: These are questions that ask respondents to rate something on a scale, such as “strongly agree” to “strongly disagree,” or “very satisfied” to “very dissatisfied.”

          It is important to carefully design a questionnaire to ensure that it is clear, concise, and relevant to the research topic. It is also important to pilot test the questionnaire to ensure that it is understood by the target audience and that it is producing the desired data.
