Full Description

You have designed and implemented a user feedback survey, and now you would like to see the results. This half-day hands-on workshop will cover data analysis of user feedback surveys using Excel.

In the first part of the workshop, participants will learn how to perform calculation of descriptive statistics (mean, mode, ranges, standard deviation) and frequency analysis of survey data. We will review relationships between categorical variables in survey data, and learn cross tabulation using Pivot Table. Best practices for analyzing qualitative data from open-ended questions will be discussed. The workshop will end with an activity where participants will apply what they learned by analyzing survey data.

By the end of this program, participants will:
