Hi, guys. For a market intel class we're creating a survey for prospective executive mba students. We want to pre-test it before we hand it in for a grade. Would some of you be willing to take it and give us feedback? (I know most people here are looking at daytime MBAs, but our professor told us daytime MBAs are a good enough test group.)

We'd want to know how long it took and if any of the questions were unclear. The whole thing - the survey itself and feedback - should take about 20 minutes. If we could get at least 5 people to take it, that would be great.

I'll probably post it Tuesday night, or maybe Monday if my team meeting is productive tomorrow.

In the meantime, just to get an idea of how many testers we'll have, could you let me know you're interested? Don't worry, no commitment implied.

gracias

So EMBA prospies only or regular MBA folks as well? Not sure if that's what you meant by daytime MBA's.

anyone interested in an mba is fine. daytime is fuqua-talk for full-time, on-campus program. it always makes me think of day camp, though.

Ok, Part 1 of the survey is done...team is not delivering quite when I'd hoped, but can you all do this part?

I don't need to collect your data - the assignment is more about survey design - but DO need this:

1. Please time it, and do so somewhat carefully.

2. Please tell me if any part of it is at all annoying, confusing, a pain, or otherwise less than joyful.

Bonus -

If you want to fill it out and PM me the attachment (or just post on the board if you don't care about anonymity), then I can look them over and see if you interpreted the survey as I hoped!

Oh, and don't worry what type of program (executive, full-time, or part time) you're actually interested in or which school you're going to. You can either pretend you're interested in Duke, or just think about some school you're more familiar with. The actual data doesn't matter - what matters is the process.

In the interest of limited contamination, please post your time, comments, and responses here:
