Hi,

ONASurveys from Optimice provides the ability to search a list of names. It is also very flexible in managing lists (via GoogleDocs or Excel) spreadsheets with respondents and emails as well as name lists.

Dear SOCNetters,



We are preparing to conduct a large network study with a relatively large pool of respondents, involving about 500 people in an organization. For our smaller surveys we have used Qualtrix, listing a roster of names as checkboxes/dropdowns for the name generator question.  But the problem now is that presenting a roster of 500 names is simply too much for a name generator. Even if we break it down into two questions by gender (e.g. male friends; female friends) it is still too large of a list to ask respondents to scroll through. In addition there is a less serious complication in that our rosters are not standardized (e.g. some include first name, followed by family name; some begin with family name followed by first name).

 

It would be great if there is a survey software out there that presents a “dynamic roster” based on what the respondent is typing into the name generator. So if the respondent is typing “Bill”, it will list all the Bills and Williams in the organization for the respondent to check off :

Bill Cunningham

Bill Ramos

Jenkins William

William Meyer

….


The only other requirement besides the capability for a dynamic roster is that the survey could be administered online.

 

It would be nice if the platform had the following features, but they are not essential:

1) Ability to manage respondents: Our survey is longitudinal so we would like to manage attrition: respondents who  drop out, respondents who ask us to take them off the list, respondents who exit the organization, etc

2) Ability to ask name interpreter questions by piping in the alter names, provided in the name generator questions.

3) Ability to manage incentives 


I looked through the archives of the listserv and it looks like 2005 is the last time this question was broached. Can anyone recommend a platform that has the above features? Any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Nick Harrigan & Michael Genkin
