The use of online surveys in capturing large-scale data
MetadataShow full item record
Surveys are regularly used as a tool to capture data for research in the social sciences. Advancements in Information and Communication Technologies, including the rapid growth of Internet usage, have encouraged the development of online and email surveys as a cost and time effective research tool. This paper will explore the design and implementation issues of using a Griffith University developed online survey maker for a DEST funded Queensland-wide, cross-sectorial study involving primary school principals and learning support teachers and the provision of education services to students with learning difficulties. It will discuss national and international issues and trends regarding current use of online surveys for research in order to inform the design, construction and implementation of surveys for the pilot study in the current ongoing project.
