Starting with the survey you've already developed, we'll show you how to turn it into a matrix survey. Matrix surveys allow you to a) easily analyze subgroups of respondents, b) alter the wording for each group of respondents, or each individual respondent, and c) direct certain questions only to selected subgroups of respondents. Matrix surveys have hundreds of uses, from workshop and class evaluations to disciplinary research in fields from education to health care.Optional Homework after Session B: create a matrix survey that you're considering for actual use. Submit it to us, and we'll give you suggestions for how it might be improved.
