Plan your own surveys

Surveys are only useful if you get useful answers to your question. In this context, the good construction of a questionnaire and informing the respondents about the purpose of the survey are essential. But also the appropriate timing, the appropriate target group and the appropriate method are also important for the success of your survey.

Plan your own surveys at the TU Darmstadt

Did you know, for example, that employee surveys require the approval of the staff council?
Do you already know the results of the central TU Student Survey and the Graduate Survey? They may already provide the information you would like to ask for.

If you would like to conduct your own survey at the department or in a central unit, we will advise you on the appropriate time for the survey, if necessary also on the design of your project, the delimitation of the appropriate target group or advice on suitable methodological instruments for the implementation of your survey.
There are a number of rules that you should always follow when operationalising indicators or constructing questionnaires.

Data protection must also never be forgotten in surveys!

We will point out possible pitfalls in surveys and can also provide you with important organizational information.
