Can Response Order Bias Evaluations?
Israel, Glenn D.; Taylor, C. L.
Evaluation and Program Planning, v13 n4 p365-71 1990
Mail questionnaire items that are susceptible to order effects were examined using data from 168 questionnaires in a Florida Cooperative Extension Service evaluation. Order effects were found for multiple-response and attributive questions but not for single-response items. Order also interacted with question complexity, social desirability, and associations between items. (TJH)
