In the  words of Goode and hatt  In general the word questionnaire refers to advice for securing answers to question by using a form which the respondent fills in himself .Hsian pao  Yang definers it as the questionnaire provides the quickest and earliest method of gathering data from large and widely scattered  group of people similarly schedule is a list of question which is carried by the investigator himself or by the enumerators appointed by him to the respondents to record the answers to the questions asked to them by enumerators.

Thus it is clear from the above definitions that questionnaire or schedule is the only media of communication between the investigator and the respondents. As such it should be designed and drafted with utmost care and caution so that all relevant and necessary information regarding investigation may be collected without any difficulty and vagueness.
