Building a Case for Conducting Technology Surveys On-Line.
Denton, Jon J.; Strader, Arlen
A Technology in Texas Public Schools 1998 Survey instrument was integrated into a Web-based response system enabling the instrument to be accessed, completed, submitted, and instantaneously analyzed over the Internet. A mark-sense or optical scan paper version of the instrument was also developed for mail-out distribution to each school district in the state of Texas. The decision to provide two response options to school administrators for this survey provided the research question for this investigation: "Is there a difference in survey responses submitted by Internet or mail?" The findings revealed no observed differences in responses whether the survey was submitted electronically or by mail. Other issues of cost, time, and human networks were discussed. (Author/AEF)
