Method kit: Online survey

In the 21st century, it is crucial not only to collect data, but also to manage, evaluate and apply it critically. The "survey@KIT" project aims to do just that - to promote data literacy among students. The project is led by the Department of Quality Management for Studies and Teaching, the Center for Media Learning (ZML) and the House of Competence (HoC)/Methods Lab.

The method kit is located on a learning platform (KIT internal). It includes a variety of learning materials and e-tutorials that focus on the following key areas:

  • Methodological basics for conducting a survey: This teaches basic concepts and survey processes to provide a solid foundation for designing and implementing surveys.

  • Survey Methodology: This section covers topics such as measurement theory, quality criteria and the use of standardized designs. The aim is to provide a sound knowledge of survey methodology.

  • Basics of data protection: As the responsible handling of data is of central importance, students are given an introduction to the basics of data protection in the context of surveys.

In addition to these learning materials, the KIT will provide standardized survey software that can be used by students free of charge in the context of project work and final theses. This software should not only make it easier to conduct surveys, but also ensure consistent data collection and analysis.
