Association for Institutional Research (NJ1)
Students are demanding more convenient and less time-consuming forums in which to be engaged in all areas of their education, including sharing their ideas about their educational experiences. Web surveys are more prevalent as a technologically advanced research medium being used throughout higher education. As such, this methodology is proving to be an effective means of allowing students to provide their input. One arena that has yet to be fully explored is whether or not the use of incentives will encourage a higher response rate among students participating in web-based student survey panels.
