Lies, damned lies, and surveys: Designing better surveys for education and research

Led by: Anthony R. Artino, Jr., PhD

Professor and Associate Dean for Evaluation and Educational Research

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Washington, DC, USA

The 2021-22 Digital Transform MedEd programme commences with a webinar led by Professor Anthony Artino which will consider the challenge of designing and implementing high-quality, self-administered surveys.

Using empirical data and a series of examples from health care, education, and politics, Professor Artino will describe how survey results can be used to shape science and policy, often inappropriately. The webinar will provide insight into the cognitive processes that guide how respondents make sense of survey questions and demonstrate what happens when these cognitive processes are ignored by educators and researchers.

Professor Artino will propose several design principles meant to improve surveys and introduce a seven-step process that front loads the survey-design process by focusing heavily on item development and pretesting.
