TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I never survey to check my performance. Not that I am so great, but it is a
waste of time, since most of the engineers and programmers will respond with
even less enthusiasm to a survey than to the requests for information or
requests for review that I send out now.
I ask during the writing and review process "what else do you need?" and
then I provide it. If they don't answer, I don't provide it.

Subject: Surveying Your Customers
Hey Y'all -
How do you survey your SME community to gather feedback on writer's
performance? Do you send a formal survey, use email, forms, etc.?
Do you use an internal email format; or, something like Survey Monkey to
gather feedback? What kinds of questions do you ask?
Any samples would be most appreciated.
