[APG Public List] Participating in Evaluations

We have recently used Survey Monkey in another organization to evaluate a
specific program.  It worked extremely well.  It's easy to use and easy to
analyze the results.

The free version is limited to 10 questions, but with thought and careful
wording, 10 is enough to find out what you need to know.

Surveys, of course, are most valuable when they target a specific issue and
are sent to those whose input is most relevant.  This software can
accomplish that.

I wouldn't call the results scientific because of the limited scope and
distribution, but we considered the results a valid indicator of what we
were assessing.

A strange thought just occurred to me. Has anyone ever tried to use Survey
Monkey or some other similar free online survey system to try and get
detailed feedback on their presentations? If so, how successful was it (in
numbers and in quality of evaluation)?
