Analysing your survey data

  • End: 23rd July, 2024 @ 12:00PM
  • Online

Surveys are a brilliant way of gathering information from people but sometimes the results can be challenging to interpret and present. A good survey will include a variety of question types – multiple choice, rating scales and open-ended questions but each of these requires different skills and approaches to draw out the results effectively.

Whatever your survey tool of choice, join us for this free session to learn how to get the best out of your survey results. Whether within your survey tool or once you’ve downloaded or imported your responses into Microsoft Excel or Google sheets.

This session will cover

  • Analysing multiple choice questions
  • Summarising rating scales
  • Introducing coding and theming for free text responses

Pre-course requirement

We recommend attending this course as a follow on to some of our other sessions: Online forms and surveys, An Introduction to Excel, and Excel Next Steps 1 & 2. If you haven’t attended previous sessions, please note that this session requires a good working knowledge of Excel.

Am I eligible for this course?

Priority for this course will be given to staff members and volunteers of Trust for London funded small charities & community organisations working in London.

Is this course for me?

This session is designed for people using Microsoft Excel 2016 or 2019 or Microsoft 365, on a Windows desktop or laptop. If you have an earlier version of Excel or work on a Mac you’ll find that some of the features we look at either don’t exist or are accessed differently, which can sometimes be a bit confusing.

Course format

Online technical group training

This is an online interactive live training session. You’ll take part in interactive exercises such as breakout room discussions, polls or chat conversations.

You will be asked to complete individual technical tasks on your PC or laptop. You will not be able to join this training using a mobile device. It’s likely that you will need to either create online accounts or download appropriate software, which we’ll tell you about in advance.
