For This Task You Will Analyze And Assess A Number Of Free Online Survey Tools T

For this task, you will analyze and assess a number of free online  survey tools that researchers can use to collect data, and then write an  essay explaining your findings.

  1. First, search the Internet for free online survey tools such as those found at and  review the survey template examples (go to Academic Surveys). Review  the examples and compare two on factors such as options, usability and  determine the cost through a service such as SurveyMonkey.
  2. Second, determine a topic area that could be researched using a quantitative measurement.
  3. Third, determine a variable that could be measured using a quantitative design.
  4. Fourth, prepare a short four-item instrument that measures a variable related to your selected topic area.
  5. Fifth, identify your population of interest if you were to use these  tools to measure the selected variable. Explain how you might most  effectively reach participants to recruit to complete your online  instrument. Describe whether your approach would differ if you were  recruiting participants to complete the same instrument in person.
  6. Sixth, pretend that you are a participant. Complete the instruments  you have created. Describe your experience as a participant with regard  to factors, such as ease of readability, and time to complete.
  7. Finally, as an independent scholar, you will have to decide which  data-collection strategy is most appropriate, given the problem  statement, purpose, and research questions of the study. Discuss the  advantages and limitations of collecting data online versus in person.  Also, discuss possible topics that might be better suited for online  data collection as opposed to in person.

Support your assertions with citations to five peer-reviewed resources.
