  • About the Edition

    Museums have historically performed audience research using face-to-face interviews with randomly selected visitors who are intercepted by museum representatives. Although this data collection method can yield robust data about visitor experiences and interests, it requires training and human resources which are often a burden to museum administrators. Computerized surveys may be a less costly alternative to face-to-face interviews. This study compares survey results obtained from three administration modes: self-selected visitors responding to a computerized questionnaire, randomly intercepted visitors responding to the same computerized questionnaire and randomly intercepted visitors responding to a face-to-face interview. Self-selected respondents were significantly younger than randomly intercepted respondents as well as significantly more likely to have had previous exposure to the museum. Interviews were most likely to elicit answers to open-ended questions. Although fewer respondents to the computerized questionnaire provided answers to the open-ended questions, they provided the most well-developed answers.

    Despite the plethora of methods within UX research and across the behavioral sciences, most methods can be grouped into broader methods of data collection: the survey, experiment, observation, interview and focus group. Each has its strengths and weaknesses and the “best” method depends on the research goals of the study. The data collection and analysis plan for a needs assessment should: A. Develop a comprehensive approach B. Discount stakeholder bias C. Focus on one sub .

The methods involved in survey data collection are any of a number of ways in which data can be collected for a statistical survey. These are methods that are used to collect information from a sample of individuals in a systematic way.
