The course is comprised of two mandatory training sessions, that are each 2-hours long and an additional 2-4 hours of learning in the form e-lessons and a project based assessment.
The first session introduces Qualtrics and basic question types, such as multiple choice and matrix tables. Display and Skip Logic, which allow you to control the flow of a survey, are explored. The session finishes by introducing a process for designing an online survey.
In between the first and second session, you will be expected to complete an hour's worth of e-lessons on the basic principles of survey methodology and begin designing a survey of your own.
The second session explores how to customise survey options and the look and feel of a Qualtrics survey. Annonymous distribution methods are explained. The session finishes by looking at how to view and export data and how to create simple reports on your survey data.
The final component of the course is a practical assessment. You will design a survey using Qualtrics that demonstrates good survey methodology. The survey can be a "real-life" survey that you need to create for yours research or job, or it can be one that is of interest to you.
Estimated amount of learning time:
Session I - 2 hours
Session II - 2 hours
E-learning: 1 hour
Practical project assessment: 2 - 4 hours
For a total of between 7 - 9 hours.

Online Survey Designer - Foundation digital badge and certificate.
The digital badge is issued by Cardiff Metropolitan University through the Acclaim platform.
To complete the course and gain the digital badge, learners are required to complete the face-to-face training and pass a practical project assessment.
Earners of this badge are able to apply basic principles of good survey design to create online surveys that capture data effectively. Using Qualtrics survey software they have proven that they are able to: create a range of survey questions, utilise survey logic to adjust survey flow and customise the aesthetics of a survey.
