Web-based data collection provides a convenient way for respondents to communicate information to decision-makers through their survey responses. Optimal researchers have developed and implemented numerous web-based surveys, sometimes in combination with mail and/or telephone outreach, for federal, state, local, non-profit, and community organizations. Optimal can design, disseminate, and even host your organization's next online survey in cyberspace. View a more detailed, step-by-step description of how Optimal's Web-based surveys work for our clients.
Optimal utilizes the web-based survey software, SelectSurveyASP, to collect, compile, and tabulate data. Responses are tracked in real time and can be viewed at the individual and aggregate level. Aggregate results can be viewed online in a graphical format, but also exported to a spreadsheet application in order to view and manipulate individual results.
