Oes data and analysis present a good argument? Debating the research method of an article
This is the instruction:
Grandcolas, Rettie, and Marusenko (2003)article (is attacehed) examines the difference between surveys administered by paper and pencil procedures and by Web procedures. This paper is published in a refereed journal, and its quality is assured. However, any paper can be scrutinised and is open to criticism in part and improvements.
In the abstract the authors write: We argue that the differences found are attributable to sample bias rather than mode, and that the ramifications of low response rates in web surveys are more far reaching than has been recognized.”
