Responses that May Indicate Nonattending Behaviors in Three Self-Administered Educational Surveys.
Barnette, J. Jackson
Research in the Schools, v3 n2 p49-59 Fall 1996
The incidence of three types of behaviors consistent with nonattending in completing surveys was studied with 1,240 elementary school students, 3,541 students in grades 5 through 12, and 2,688 teachers. While the proportion of missing items did not seem to be a problem, there is evidence of patterns that indicate nonattending behavior. (SLD)
