"The questionnaire design section contains many examples of how not to word questions. . . . The section on scaling is also useful and evaluators in education especially will find the summary of benefit. There is also a good section on types of evaluative research designs that might use surveys. Longitudinal surveys and normative designs are summarized concisely and clearly."(LA REVUE CANADIENNE D′EVALUATION DE PROGRAMME)
