This October’s #MonthlyMethods on Twitter was all about using surveys for research. In these open #MonthlyMethods resources we answered common questions about why quality surveys and questions matter, discussed how to design a survey with purpose, learned about the challenges for recruiting online survey participation, and listened to a professional’s experience in survey research.
While these resources were only available throughout the month of October on Twitter, we are providing special access for one extra month to MethodSpace users. Here’s what we shared this month!
