Questionnaires can be used to collect data for research studies. They typically have open or closed-ended questions, but some questionnaires use the combination of both. Open questions permit respondents to answer in their own words while closed questions offer a set of predetermined responses that they can choose from. Questionnaires can be administered in one of several ways, including through face-to-face interviews, phone calls, postal mail, or even online.

Surveys using online questionnaires have become more popular however, it’s crucial to ensure that the data collected are reliable and accurate. To do this, researchers must be able precisely measure response rates and monitor the number of respondents to the survey. The researcher must also be able recognize possible reasons for why someone might not respond and address the reasons (e.g. sampling bias).

Online questionnaires are also cheaper than traditional methods. This is why they are a popular alternative to traditional questionnaire based research. This method comes with challenges. Online questionnaires are challenging to analyze in terms of their validity and reliability and can have negative social effects on respondent samples.

There are several strategies to reduce these limitations. This article provides specific strategies that researchers can apply to increase the reliability and quality of their online questionnaires. These include: (i), paying participants immediately after they complete the survey yields the lowest response rate than waiting for all responses or an intermediary process; (iii), asking participants to fill in their names so that receipt preparation does not reduce or increase the social value of the survey as well as (iv), framing the fixed portion of the payment as”for answering the survey” and providing feedback on progress enhances the quality of responses
