Year 2007
Access date 14.09.2008

Traditional survey models have also improved significantly with the development of computers and the Internet. Online or Web-based surveys utilize modern computer and Internet technologies; and thus bring about many challenges and opportunities. Online surveys are not only a powerful method of data collection for researchers, but are also a very effective approach to online assessment. Although research exists that compare online surveys and traditional surveys, there is a lack of research on the design of online surveys. This paper discusses the comparison of Online Survey Generating Tools (OSGTs). We have set up an effective approach to compare the various OSGTs that combines the theories of survey and the technology of computers and Internet. We undertook this project in three steps: First, we clarified the different concepts, forms, and models of OSGTs to focus our study; second, based on the literature review and our previous study of OSGTs, this paper will discuss the criteria for its comparison; finally, some suggestions for the development of OSGTs are presented.
