Abstract Title: Take My Survey, Please!: Comparison of Survey Response Rates Across Four Administration Factors
Abstract: This poster identifies modes of assessment administration which produce the highest response rates. The analysis compares the response rates of students who answered both the "Sources of Self-Efficacy in Science Courses" and CLASS surveys administered at Florida International University between Fall 2008 and Spring 2009. The survey administrations, given as both a pre- and post-course surveys, included four factors: two survey formats (paper or online), an incentive (extra credit from the professor or no extra credit), email notifications (two different versions), and follow-up reminders (email, in person, or none). We present findings of this analysis and make recommendations to help streamline their survey administration processes and maximize response rates.
