The goal of this study is to improve surveys. This will be done by having participations fill out a basic survey questionnaire about surveys. Participants will be asked questions such as "What do you like about surveys?" The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
If you choose to participate in this survey, you can click the "Start the Survey" link at the top of this page. From there you will be directed to a secure page that will explain the survey and the research project in detail.
Once you have read this information, you will then be directed to a consent form. If you give your consent, you will be randomly directed to begin either the gamified or non-gamified survey. The purpose behind this is to compare the results of the two surveys.
If you do not give your consent, or if you change your mind later on, you can withdraw from the survey at any time.
Privacy and Confidentiality
Your name, address and demographic information will NOT be collected by the survey questionnaire. You will only be required to provide information that is
not sensitive in nature (ie. do you like video games?). All collected information will be kept secure using data encryption software.
At the end of the study, all raw data will be destroyed to ensure anonymity and that results cannot be traced back to a completed questionnaire. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me, the principal researcher, using the information provided in the "Start the Survey" page in this website.
