Using Internet Surveys To Gather Research Data From Teachers: Trials And Tribulations
The paper describes one specific approach to implementing web based survey research and reviews a range of online survey techniques. The advantages and disadvantages of various web based survey approaches are discussed. The paper describes one research project that used an 'off line contact-online response' in an educational setting. The researchers conclude that it is not possible to describe one process that would work well in all situations, given the variations in the way technology is currently utilised in schools and homes. The paper discusses the problems encountered and makes suggestions for future web based survey research.
