If you need to conduct a research survey, whether for an academic project or for gathering data about clients, you need to choose the methodology first. A versatile and responsive way to conduct your interviews is by using a CAWI survey. CAWI, or computer-assisted web interviewing, is easy to set up and use. Here are a few pointers to help you get started.


What is a CAWI survey?

As the name denotes, a CAWI survey is conducted online, using online survey tools such as IdSurvey software. Users gain access to the survey via a link that you provide through an email invitation or at a webpage.

There are a few characteristics that make this type of survey unique:

  • Reach a vast number of respondents simultaneously.
  • Create a custom link for each respondent or collect anonymous responses.
  • Include images, video, audio and file attachments with your survey.
  • Customize the look and feel of your survey for users using CSS styles.
  • Combine your CAWI survey with other methodologies, such as CATI and CAPI, using IdSurvey.
