SRI Authors Harold Javitz



Fusco, J., Skolnik, H., Haertel, GD, Javitz, H., Smith, N., & Thurston, E. (2005, April). OERL survey. design, methodology, administration and results. Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association, Montréal, Canada.


This paper documents the process employed to develop and administer a methodologically sound set of surveys to evaluate the Online Evaluation Resource Library (OERL) Web site. Results from the surveys are then presented. The survey work described in this paper was to serve as formative information for OERL and was not designed for summative purposes and our results serve to inform us about our users. The foci of the OERL surveys were on practical issues that are important to developing a Web site that functions as a resource for professionals. In the design of the surveys it is noted that OERL is a large, multi-faceted Web site that serves many purposes and audiences (Zalles, 2002). To more fully understand the many purposes for which the site can be and is used and the audiences that use it, three surveys were developed, aimed at three different audiences.
