Keep Asking

A free system that makes it easy to create, manage, and analyse the results of recurring surveys.


Motivation

Constructive and timely feedback is important for any person or organisation seeking to improve. Surveys are an excellent tool for gathering feedback from large groups.

Managing recurring feedback surveys using existing survey platforms (such as Google Docs or SurveyMonkey) is time-consuming and stressful. Keep Asking uses automation to relieve these burdens and help respondents to build the habit of regularly providing feedback.

Keep Asking seeks to:

  • Empower surveyors to administer recurring surveys with minimal, constant-time effort.
  • Achieve high survey response rates without overly annoying respondents.

Keep Asking's Origin

Keep Asking was built in early 2018 by Sebastian Hallum Clarke as the capstone project of his undergraduate degree in computer science at Princeton University. In designing and creating Keep Asking, Sebastian was advised by Dr Jérémie Lumbroso.

Dr Lumbroso used Keep Asking with the students of his Princeton University Advanced Programming Techniques course.

For further information about Keep Asking you can read the project report, view the poster, or contact Sebastian.
