Administration and Scoring

How to conduct and score surveys with limited resources

There are a number of considerations when conducting a survey in your program. Will my survey be in print or online? Who will give the survey to young people? When and how will they conduct the survey? This section provides resources to help youth programs develop a plan for conducting surveys, and provides some basic tips on scoring surveys. A scoring guide for YDEKC’s survey and sample Excel workbook that can be used to score it is also included.
