Assignment A Answer:
Online surveys are a convenient way to receive feedback from customers. In recent years, the response rate to these surveys has diminished over 50%. The reason for the decrease is the lack of engagement they create or boredom. There are many resolutions to this issue. Some suggest adding color and imagery, while other suggest shorter, less winded questions. Understanding of social psychology assists how to write and construct questions and scenarios.
The concepts from the article work hand in hand with with our lesson. Social psychology aids in structuring the survey, creating specific question to get specific answers. Sampling & piloting helps define the target audience and monitor the survey in small from before it is mass released.
