SurveyMonkey is the key to building quick surveys

Posted Oct 27 2009 11:04pm

Need a quick way to obtain anonymous assessment of a conference lecturer from individual audience members?

Need a quick online application where you can collect user demographic information?

Need to build a quick survey on how medical students felt about a new curricular change?

A few years ago, I learned about SurveyMonkey -- a versatile and user-friendly online survey-building service. I have no financial ties with the company. For only $200 annually, I love the fact that I can build an infinite number of surveys. The data is automatically collated and I can download in Excel format. If your department doesn't have access to this yet, it might be worth looking at.

To give you an idea of a sample layout, check out this survey that I built in 15 minutes. I would like to assess the utility and effectiveness of my microsimulation DIEM case for CDEM. Don't worry about accidentally entering data. I'm clearing the test data after I start the official launch of the DIEM case. Suggestions and comments welcome on this first-draft survey layout!

Currently, our SurveyMonkey site houses such tools as:
  • Previously, I used this to collect our weekly EM residency and weekly medical student conference lecture evaluations.
  • Monthly faculty evaluations of off-service residents who rotate through our EDs
  • Monthly evaluations of faculty by medical students, interns, and residents
  • Application for medical students to get a CDEM's E-Advisor
  • Application to become a CDEM E-Advisor
  • Schedule request for our Research Internship Program for SF State University
