Question Bank

The BR&E Tools Question Bank can help you customize your existing survey instrument or create a new one by selecting questions from the twelve categories of sample questions listed below.

Most of the questions came from the Ohio State BR&E program. University of Minnesota BR&E specialists and Extension educators reviewed those questions in 2007 and deemed them good for BR&E surveys. However, we cannot guarantee that they work in the field. So, we invite your feedback on how they work for you.

If you have questions that have worked for you that you would like to add to the Question Bank, please send them to us.
