Do Questionnaires Tell the Truth?
Turner, Joseph
Change, 9, 6, 46-7,64, Jun 77
A recent project in higher education in which evidence of falsification was found is described along with two other projects that demonstrate the possibility for falsification. An advantage of standardized questionnaires and machine techniques for scoring and reporting is the low cost, but the need to detect and prevent falsification raises fundamental questions about the validity of large-volume research.
