Limitations of Questionnaires and Web Experiments

advantages and disadvantages of questionnaires

Web-based experiments and questionnaires are essential epidemiologic tools that provide important information about public health and diseases. They are a common method for collecting data. They are generally more affordable and efficient than face-toface interviews, mailed questionnaires, or automated telephone menu systems. Questionnaires and Web experiments do not come without limitations, and these must be addressed to obtain valid and reliable results.

A questionnaire may be affected by response bias, which is the tendency of respondents to answer questions according to their personal opinions rather than according to research goals. The structure of a questionnaire can influence responses in various ways. For example the wording of the question could affect whether respondents understand the question and interpret it in the same manner (reliable) and whether the question measures the topic you are looking for (valid) and whether they can accurately answer (credible).

Lack of involvement with the questions may also make respondents less likely to give honest answers. In addition, the absence of incentive or compensation may discourage participants from taking the time to complete survey forms.

Online questionnaires can also pose a challenge for some experimental designs, like positioning or reaction-time studies. The variation in settings for browsers, screen sizes, and operating systems makes it difficult to control and measure the same variables across all participants.

Finally, web-based surveys may only be accessed by people who are keyboard and Internet knowledgeable. This excludes a substantial portion of the population. It’s also difficult to Web researchers to update participants after the experiment window has ended.
