Doing Surveys Online is an authoritative yet easily accessible primer covering all aspects of how to conduct good, rigorous web-based surveys. In it, Vera Toepoel clearly and concisely summarizes the state of the art using the most up-to-date and authoritative research sources. This book should be required reading for anyone contemplating conducting an online survey.
Vera Toepoel indeed achieves her aim to provide a single resource for conducting online surveys with this book. The result is an excellent, comprehensive and thoughtful research handbook. It will make a good reference point for any survey methods course, and the training of research students, and active researchers who aspire to employ online surveys.
This book covers all the steps needed to conduct surveys with a focus on the online mode. With didactically well-prepared features, the volume is a valuable source for university students and teachers alike, as well as a handy and usable toolbox for beginning practitioners. A comprehensive and comprehensible read.
The book supplements traditional surveys methods by mapping them to online platforms.
Surveys are a common methodology in educational research, but often relegated to a chapter in a general text about research methods. It is really helpful to have a specific guide, not just surveys, but about online surveys. Though, due to the ever-changing nature of the online environment, there are likely to be updates / new editions needed, this text currently provides an accessible guide to conducting rigorous online surveys and how to interpret the data. Anyone considering using web-based surveys should make use of this guide.
Excellent approach well explained. Good for novice and more advanced research students.
Recommended reading for those who will proceed for a research design with online surveys.
A very thorough and detailed book covering online surveys. This is not a book for anyone new to research and it assumes a level of pre-existing knowledge and also familiarity with research terminology.
There are some nice examples and the text is broken up to some degree by images and diagrams which helps. In some parts it is a little busy and perhaps tries to do too much.
excellent introductory text in a subject that is new to most med ed researchers. Will only be suitable for those who who select this methodology
a useful text for undergraduate research projects
Inspection copy requested for research purposes
This is a really straightforward but still rigorous book on the perils and the joys of doing surveys on-line. This method is increasingly being used by our doctoral candidates and to have a reference book that details the specific issues is excellant. Well produced and highly readable.
This is a key tool for the masters level Advanced Practitioner Inquiry module which leads to the work based project phase.An excellent text, fit for a variety of research projects.
Too detailed/specialised for this module
very useful collection of advice, well-referenced, it is rare to find a text on this subject
Gives a comprehensive and accessible overview of the online survey process, while pointing to a great selection of sources for further reading.
A comprehensive text on designing surveys and interpreting their findings. Clear with good use of illustrations.
Will recommend to students carrying out large surveys on line. Very detailed step by step requirements from setting up to analysing and presenting data.
With the growing tendency to carry out surveys online amongst U/G & P/G students this book allows student researchers to consider the pros and cons of such an approach.
good and useful introduction and instruction manual, very good resource for students who first encounter/prepare online surveys
