The work also teaches audiences how to create reports and present them using computers. Moreover, this edition includes in depth coverage of human subjects protections-which is an issue about which today's surveyors must know. Finally, the text prepares researchers and students to employ the Internet and e-mail in their work.

Review:

"The questionnaire design section contains many examples of how not to word questions. . . . The section on scaling is also useful and evaluators in education especially will find the summary of benefit. There is also a good section on types of evaluative research designs that might use surveys. Longitudinal surveys and normative designs are summarized concisely and clearly."

(LA REVUE CANADIENNE D'EVALUATION DE PROGRAMME)
