Response Patterns in Computer-Administered Surveys
Unformatted Document Text:  Computer Administered Surveys 11 participants’ computers, even though the experimental group descriptions say they were. The groups for the study are: Group One: The control group. Group Two: This experimental group will be asked to input their email addresses. Group Three: This experimental group will have been asked to input their email addresses, but will have declined. Group Four: This experimental group’s members will be asked if they wish to read a privacy policy. Group Five: This experimental group chose to read the privacy policy. Group Six: This experimental group’s members is informed a [fictional] cookie will be placed on their computers, and given the option to decline that cookie. Group Seven: This experimental group chose to decline the [fictional] cookie. Although there appear to be seven experimental groups, there are actually only four – respondents were initially assigned to Group One, Two, Four, or Six, and then their behaviors either kept them in those groups or placed them into Group Three, Five, or Seven. In the data analysis, Two and Three, Four and Five, and Six and Seven were combined into three larger groups; these larger groups assignments based on the conditions the participants received.

participants’ computers, even though the experimental group descriptions say they were. The
groups for the study are: Group One: The control group. Group Two: This experimental
group will be asked to input their email addresses. Group Three: This experimental group
will have been asked to input their email addresses, but will have declined. Group Four: This
experimental group’s members will be asked if they wish to read a privacy policy. Group
Five: This experimental group chose to read the privacy policy. Group Six: This
experimental group’s members is informed a [fictional] cookie will be placed on their
computers, and given the option to decline that cookie. Group Seven: This experimental
group chose to decline the [fictional] cookie.
Although there appear to be seven experimental groups, there are actually only four –
respondents were initially assigned to Group One, Two, Four, or Six, and then their behaviors
either kept them in those groups or placed them into Group Three, Five, or Seven. In the data
analysis, Two and Three, Four and Five, and Six and Seven were combined into three larger
groups; these larger groups assignments based on the conditions the participants received.

Chi-square tests were performed to test the three hypotheses. For the research
questions, frequency distributions and descriptive statistical data were gathered. SPSS was
used in the data analysis.
