Abstract Perhaps the most exciting development in recent years in the assessment field has been the advent of Internet-based surveying. While there are many ways of collecting data electronically, perhaps the most user friendly is when prospective respondents are contacted by email, informed about the purposes and parameters of the study, and then asked to link to a website to respond to the survey. Respondents can click on appropriate responses for each item, and then return the survey electronically. Depending upon the sophistication of the data collection software, individual responses can be assembled into a database and analyzed, providing the investigator with information ready to be further analyzed and interpreted. We believe this method of collecting and analyzing data has the potential to revolutionize the way in which we conduct assessments in student affairs and higher education, but not without some considerable caveats.
