Frequently Asked Questions

Question: I have developed a survey that I would like to administer online. What should I be considering when evaluating Web sites that offer this service?

Answer: Keep several considerations in mind when evaluating online survey options:

  • How flexible is the design? Can I construct the different types of question and answer options that I need?
  • Will the data output in a useful way?
  • How many responses can be collected?
  • Can the survey be password protected? Can it be restricted so it can be completed only once on a particular computer?
  • What is the cost structure?
