Abstract: The emergence of Internet has help surveyors create online survey methodology which had advantages and disadvantages. One of the online survey disadvantages is its difficulty in applying it on a random sample. Therefore, many researchers complement the disadvantages in any survey mode by using another mode. Although the use of mixed-mode became the new norm, previous studies have raised questions about the measurement of the questions and its reliability in measuring the same answers in two different modes. This study investigates one particular type of survey questions (open-ended) and compare the item-response rate between two groups of participants that responded to the survey through two different modes (telephone and online). The findings of the study show significant difference between the two groups in the item-response rate of open-ended questions. Online participants answer more open-ended questions than telephone participants. The study offers suggestions for future research and discusses the limitations in this study.

Abstract: Many social phenomena bare the imprint of regional and global social, economic, and political processes, and therefore should be studied in a comparative framework. However, inequalities in survey coverage across various regions and the lack of uniform data collection and documentation standards in cross-national survey projects pose a serious limitation to comparative research. While previous efforts to advance cross-national research usually produce a new dataset, we argue that the answer to these problems is actually better integration of existing data. This paper focuses on the assessment of the quality of data documentation, an important, although often neglected, element of any data analysis that is especially crucial for data harmonization projects. We assessed the quality of surveys based on information provided in survey documentation: questionnaire pre-testing, translation method, sampling, presence of fieldwork control, as well as unit and item non-response. Finally, we discuss incorporating documentation measures into substantive analyses, as well as the potential for standardization of survey documentation and the survey process itself.

Abstract: Research has a huge role in informing and finding solutions for the challenges presented by students’ performance in mathematics. It is a known debated challenge that students continue to struggle with mathematics learning through assessments. Many tools have been developed to elicit teacher mathematics knowledge, knowledge for teaching mathematics with the aim to improve mathematics teaching in classrooms. However, there are ethical challenges that challenge how this data is gathered. In the South African context testing practicing teachers has been scrutinized. This paper aims to share scenarios used in this tool and their strength in eliciting the data that informs professional development. In addition the paper gives insight into how these scenarios played a significant role in assisting in developing the intervention itself. Some educator responses will be shared to present these strengths and how the intervention became relevant to this group of educators.

Abstract: First, this paper examines the concept of total survey error, including interactions between the error components, its application when multiple surveys are involved, and comparison error across cross-national surveys. Second, obtaining functional equivalence and similarity in cross-national surveys is discussed. Third, the challenges of doing cross-national surveys are considered and how combining traditional approaches for maximizing functional equivalence with the utilization of TSE can minimize comparison error and maximize comparative reliability and validity. Fourth, attention is given to minimizing comparison error in question wordings in general and the availability of on-line resources for developing and testing items to be used in cross-national surveys. Special attention is given to dealing with differences in language, structure, and culture. Fifth, issues relating to evaluating scales designed to measure constructs in comparative survey research are examined. Sixth, the combined use of the multi-level, multi-source approach and TSE in cross-national surveys is considered. Finally, the importance of documentation is discussed.
