Determine the type of question(s) you would like include in your survey. Many options are available, such as multiple choice, comment/essay, rating, matrix of choices, textbox, date/time, demographic, etc. Set up your survey and determine how participants will view the questions (one at a time, sections at a time); whether they can submit an incomplete survey, etc.

Distribute the survey and begin collecting responses! Analyze the data once the survey is complete.
