​Survey Types Quiz - Test Your Knowledge

​If you've never run a survey before, how do you know what to do? For a start, there are different survey types, all designed for different purposes.

And then when you get your data, how do you analyse them?

Gahhhhh!!!!

It's starting to get complicated.

Not to worry, though, because I've got just the thing for you - I'm going to show you all the different types of survey that you'll encounter​ - after I've tested your knowledge with a short, fun ​survey types quiz.

​Get started here to test your knowledge:

Introduction to ​Survey Types

​To help you understand a little more about survey types, I've put together a little graphic to help you out.

And this is what ​it looks like:
