A considerable amount of research has been conducted into the design of web survey forms, including research into the overall design and layout of the form, navigation, question and response construction, edits, and the presentation of error messages.
The "Effective Web Survey Design" seminar will present the findings of a literature review into web survey form design, addressing each of these topics. The presentation will focus on contentious issues in the literature, and attempt to identify best practice for web survey form design.
