New Survey Templates to Help You Get Started

New Survey Templates to Help You Get Started

Whenever we ask customers what resources you’re most likely to use when developing your surveys, you consistently tell us: Survey Templates.

With that in mind, we recently updated our entire library of survey templates–both those available in our professional plans as well as in our free plan–using questions from the SurveyMonkey Question Bank. Question Bank is a database of thousands of questions that allows you to find and add commonly asked questions by category. Every question and response set has been written in a methodologically sound way to reduce bias and give you the most accurate answers.

Example Templates

When you choose a survey template from any category, you’re starting with a set of questions written by methodology experts. You can easily customize your survey by adding or removing questions as needed.

We’ve include a dozen of our new survey templates here for you to check out. Simply click on the links below:

Currently, we have 64 survey templates available in our professional plans and 39 in our free plan. We’re always adding new questions to Question Bank and new templates to our library, so let us know if there are specific questions or templates you’d like to see us add by commenting below.

  • Thom Kinney

    I work in corporate learning and development, and know many trainers that use SurveyMonkey for post-class evaluations. It seems like you’d have an easy win and could specifically target that audience if you created templates for a Level 1 (reaction) Level 2 (learning) Level 3 (Behavior) and Level 4 (Results) evals (Donald Kirkpatrick’s 4 Levels).

    • Hi Thom–thank you so much for the great suggestion. We definitely appreciate all the trainers who use SurveyMonkey for course evaluations, so it’s a great idea to make it even easier for them to do so.

  • Helen

    I’m usually a big fan of all your developments but I’m struggling to see the usefulness of some of these. Surely if you are surveying about music listening habits you need to know something more objective – number of tracks downloaded rather than just ‘extremely often’.

    That could mean any number of things – is buying 20 CDs in one go ‘extremely often’? Or two a week, every week?

    Or is the idea that survey designers will replace these options with relevant ones – every day, once a week etc etc?


    • Hi Helen–thanks so much for your feedback. The idea definitely is for templates to provide a starting point for most customers so they do not have to start from scratch. In the example you highlight, depending on the survey designer’s goals, he/she can certainly replace the response options with specific units of measure. Definitely let us know if there are specific templates (or questions) you’d like to see us add in the future.

  • I agree with Thom. As a trainer, I would appreciate having templates built around Kirkpatrick’s evaluation model as well as surveys built on other training models.

    • Thanks, Shaun! Both your and Thom’s suggestions are much appreciated. We’d love to hear which other training models you think are good ones for us to research.
