Using Web-Based Surveys to Conduct Counseling Research.
Granello, Darcy Haag; Wheaton, Joe E.
In spite of the increased use of the Internet for data collection, there is little published research about the process of data collection online. That is, discipline specific studies publish the results of their web-based surveys in discipline-specific journals, but little information is available on the process of Internet-based data collection. Thus it is difficult for the researcher wishing to use this cyber data collection method to find resources to use as guides. This document discusses using Web-based surveys to conduct counseling research. It goes over the most common types of Internet-based data collection, their advantages and disadvantages. A sample study is presented, which includes details as to the actual design, development, implementation, and analysis of the study. The document concludes with recommendations for using the Internet for data collection in research. (Contains 34 references and 3 figures.) (Author/ADT)
