People are more likely to ignore an email from a source that they are unsure of, and many of these types of emails are automatically sent to a spam folder where they will never been viewed by a respondent unlike a correspondence sent home from the school via USPS mail which will immediately be opened without question by a parent.Are there other reasons you believe emails may not be the best method for soliciting survey responses?My sons school uses email to notify parents about everything. They also send out a recorded random message to be on the lookout for mailed items, or emails with details. Sometimes sending these random messages is the best way to get information to parents versus the child bringing home a note. We get notifications on our cell phones via text messages as well. This was set up at the beginning of the school year as possible ways to notify parents. They use Survey Monkey to send mass surveys to parents. It is quite effective and efficient. I have to say when I get surveys in the mail; I am more apt to put it off then going ahead and taking an emailed survey.The auto-call systems are very popular in the schools today.How would such tools, along with emailed surveys, be construed by those without home phones or the internet?You make a good point when you ask …are the surveys being done? Taking this one step further, how do you know who is completing the surveys and if some complete it more than once?Develop some ideas for how to ensure your data is not tainted by multiple or non-requested responses being included. I like the idea of a note home to the parents.
However, is there not an element of the population that might be missed using emails? Explain for me.Hello and welcome to Brain Mass! You logged in and asked for help with the following: Are there other reasons you believe emails may not be the best method for soliciting survey responses?
– Sure! Not everyone checks their emails every day. In fact, I have an old email account that I forgot about, and I remembered to check it yesterday after about six months, and it had over 2000 emails pending on it! If any of them were important, I did not receive them because I did not check this account. Also, electronic delivery of data is not 100-percent reliable. Email especially is notorious for getting lost in transit. The auto-call systems are very popular in the schools today. How would such tools, along with emailed surveys, be construed by those without home phones or the internet?
– I would say for this that the buddy system could be implemented. If a family in the school district does not have a phone or the Internet, then perhaps a neighbour can take the responsibility of notifying them of important messages that come through on the auto-calls system after they received it. This sound primitive, but it is a very viable solution. Notes home from the teacher also works especially if it is known that the family has no telephone or Internet access. You make a good point when you ask …are the surveys being done? Taking this one step further, how do you know who is completing the surveys and if some complete it more than once?
– This is a good question! Unless you have the ability to trace ISP addresses or demand identification from respondents, there really is no way to know if the respondent has completed multiple anonymous surveys or who actually completed the survey (unless a pattern of responses can be detected). This is why it is important to factor into a survey a margin of error to cover any data collected that may be duplicated or from (for example) an unqualified respondent. This keeps the survey going with legitimate information while allowing for some lead way just in case some of the data collected is tainted in some way.Develop some ideas for how to ensure your data is not tainted by multiple or non-requested responses being included. I like the idea of a note home to the parents. However, is there not an element of the population that might be missed using emails? Explain for me.
– Believe it or not, not everyone has access to the Internet or even a home computer. These people have no use for an email account, so they simply do not have one. Sending them an email, therefore, would be a waste of time. As well, the population who is not fluent in the English language would have a difficult time understanding an email sent home that is not in their native language, so the likelihood that they would open a letter and understand its contents are low. These are two examples of the population who might be missed using emails. I hope this all helps. May I add, your professor is tough! He or she is really grilling you for responses. You are doing great with this! Do not worry. Thank you for using Brain Mass today.
