Evaluation tool – Post-event surveys
What is this tool?
Post-event surveys are self-completion questionnaires that are used immediately after an event, workshop or programme to help you understand the experience of your audience (what they thought of the experience, what they feel they have gained from it, what they think could be improved etc).
What kind of activities can I evaluate with it?
Post-event surveys are particularly effective for use with school groups and interested adults and for evaluating online activities. They are also suitable for use with the general public in interactive workshops, ongoing series of events (courses, astronomy clubs) and lectures / presentations.
When should I use it?
This tool is best suited to use at the end of (or after) an event.
What do I need?
- Post-event surveys can be delivered on paper or online.
- If you decide to use paper versions, you’ll need to prepare plenty of copies in advance and have pencils or pens available at your event, as well as flat surfaces to write on (e.g. clipboards or tables).
- Time set aside at the beginning and end when people can fill in the quiz!
