About This Workshop

This practical workshop provides an introduction to how you can quantify open-ended survey data in a robust and consistent manner for public engagement evaluation purposes. You will have the opportunity to practice this skill in the workshop in small groups, including the process of assessing the reliability of your analysis approach.

The event also covers some key introductory concepts in quantitative analysis of survey data using descriptive statistics; which is also invaluable within public engagement evaluation.
