Reliability of the Conflict Resolution Questionnaire: Considerations for Using and Developing Internet-Based Questionnaires
Henning, Marcus
Internet and Higher Education, v7 n3 p247-258 2004
In the current information age, there is a growing use of and reliance on the Internet. One area of concern for educators is the communication of information using an electronic questionnaire interface. Therefore, it seems pertinent to look at the issue of dissemination of Internet questionnaire information and the integrity of this process. Internet-based questionnaires are commonly used to capture responses from the public that can then be used as data for making so-called meaningful interpretations and suggestions. One such questionnaire is the Conflict Resolution Questionnaire (CRQ). This paper is divided into three parts. The author evaluates the reliability of the CRQ. Secondly, the author reflects upon this evaluation and considers the use of Internet-based questionnaires in a more general sense. Thirdly, the author presents some existing solutions and safeguards in using the Internet and in monitoring the use of Internet-based assessment. The results of this preliminary study suggested that the CRQ has weak intrafactor reliability, therefore prompting serious reflection on the use of Internet-based questionnaires. This preliminary study raises questions about the authenticity of similar questionnaires that are available from the Internet. (Contains 1 table.)
