        Respondent bias is a problem with ALL surveys.

          That one is probably a bit too open to suggestion.
          It needs to give the survey taker more options than "yes" or "no".

          And with that, seems a bit direct and to the point. Kind of have to analyze all of the questions and responses myself.

            I am doing this paper on smartphones and using the calendar and how people are forgetting things.



            Problem is, when making the survey, I am not sure what to ask for forgetting stuff. Like what do I ask people? How often you forget? Anyone have a good idea on that?
            First thing you should ask is if people use the calendar or other PDA program on their smartphones to schedule/remember to do things, and non-digital medium (wall calendar. schedule/appointment book, etc.), or if they use nothing at all? [This would be a check all that apply answer]. If respondents answer they use more than one, ask which they use as their primary method of recording events? Did the respondents use a non-digital medium before migrating to using a digital device? How frequently do they record events? Do they have trouble remembering events if not recorded? Do they forget occasionally if not recorded or more frequently? Are they prone to forgetting things other than dates/events if not recorded? Do they consider themselves to have a reliable memory? Do the respondents feel as if they have more issues remembering things now as opposed to when things weren't so "connected?"

            There's a few thoughts, hopefully you can find a kernel or two in there to help.

              This is awesome info. My target is college students, so hopefully the majority actually use devices like this.

                  • I'm trying to figure out how to add in some open-ended questions for this.

                    I guess I can ask:

                    "What are some events that you sometimes forget if you didn't mark it down?"

                    I need like 1 or 2 more and i can't focus in this!

                      Maybe ask if people consider themselves organized or disorganized (you can then cross this against people who tend to forget things and those that do not to see if there is a correlative effect or other relationship [are some people organized because they forget?]).

                      I suppose that isn't too open ended, but potentially interesting nonetheless.

                        Is open-ended required for the survey? If it isn't, I wouldn't even consider factoring it in unless you have an all-encompassing classification method in place to record/analyze the answers, that -- without question -- will vary.

                        Plus, survey participation will be a much easier task if the surveys are just simple, multiple choice/checkbox options. If survey participation won't be an issue, then disregard whatever I'm saying lol.

                          We need 2 open-end questions that are simple and short. No long-answers really.
