Rapid Guides

IndiKit’s Rapid Guides respond to aid workers’ demand for short and useful guidance on a range of survey-related topics.      

 

Practical Checklists

IndiKit’s survey checklists enable you to quickly assess whether you have omitted an important step in your survey design and implementation.

 

The Quality Improvement and Verification Checklists (QIVC) provided below focus on improving the quality of the data collector’s work.
