Online Research Tools
I found out about Question Pro through a fellow PeLs member. It can be used for both corporate and academic research surveys. There's a nice link for students and academics on questionnaire design, survey questions and answer types. You can try Survey Pro for comparison.
Check out the 30 day free trial if you need to do quick surveys. Or pay USD 99-249 for the whole survey suite. If you're doing research on a shoestring budget (like I am), create your questionnaire offline first, have a trusted friend or mentor critique it, then put in on line.
