Web-Based Surveys: Guiding Lessons for Their Use.
Mertler, Craig A.
This paper discusses the advantages and limitations of administering a survey questionnaire via the Internet (i.e., using both Web-based and e-mail platforms). It also addresses particular issues faced by one researcher as a reflection on the use of this methodology. Highlighted are problems associated with the use of listservs, e-mail addresses, formats for downloading and compiling data, and the nonrandom nature of the resulting sample. (Contains 2 tables and 11 references.) (Author/SLD)
