EA Tools

I have just created a survey on Survey Monkey. It turned out to be more tricky than I had anticipated. I had the questions that I wanted to ask on post it notes and I thought that from this I would easily be able to map out the survey. This wasn’t the case, as the survey branches of depending on certain answers.

My advice to anyone using this tool in the future is to to do a flow diagram of your survey on paper first as it is a lot harder to change the stucture of the survey once it is in Survey Monkey. I would even say make sure your questions and responses are spot on too before you start. If you tweak these half way through it can change the whole flow of the survey.

  1. Agree totally. I wish survey monkey allowed you to write the whole thing as a text or XML file and then upload it in one go.

    Also, I’d advise avoiding branches unless they are genuinely important. They add testing time to the survey, and things can go wrong.
