Unique Capabilities Electronic surveys and measure provide four main advantages to research participants. The first of these is convenience. The research can be conducted in the research participant’s own home or office. There is no requirement to physically attend the researcher’s environment. Second, the voluntary nature of participation is enhanced in online research. Reips (1996) argued that the ecological validity of research is increased, as the individual takes part in their own surroundings rather than in an artificial laboratory.

A self-designed and administered survey system has many advantages over commercial survey systems. Researchers have more control over the system. It is easier to monitor the survey and back up the database regularly, and it is flexible so the researcher can fix unexpected problems promptly. Self-designed and administered systems can more easily comply with an organization’s security policy, and make the system stable and reliable. For example, a survey designer may choose to host the Web survey on a Linux machine, which is widely recognized as a more secure system than other systems such as Windows.

One way is to use the same approach as that explained in the example for demographic questions, by rewriting the query statement in Figure 5. Since there is only one value to store, and in order to reduce the Web Survey Design chances of database access and eliminate similar coding again and again, a hidden input textbox can be used to pass the value. Pilot Test The survey instrument has to be pretested through a pilot study before administrating the final survey. The purpose of a pilot study is to evaluate the instrument for content validity and to identify any potential problems, such as understandability and operationability.
