IBM SPSS Data Collection Survey Authoring (Base) (V7) is a one day course designed to be the first step of a complete Author training solution.

Regardless of your deployment options (Web, Telephone, Paper, Data Entry or Interviewer), this course will teach you how to create a variety of survey questions, how to use external content when available, how surveys are structured and managed and finally how to implement and validate survey logic.

Having acquired this grounding in survey creation, the second step involves taking additional courses that teach how to integrate your specific deployment requirements - for example; adding images, web pages templates, sample and quota for web surveys. Each of these additional courses also take you through the final step of survey deployment.


This basic course is intended for users of IBM SPSS Data Collection Author that need to create and deploy surveys.


Understanding of the survey creation and the data collection processes would be helpful, but not required.
