Library Assessment Conference: Building Effective, Sustainable, Practical Assessment August 5, 2008 LibQUAL+ Lite: A New Model for Conducting Service Quality Assessments That Both Minimizes Demands on Users and Maximizes Response Rates Presented by Colleen Cook Martha Kyrillidou Bruce Thompson
LibQUAL® Lite The measurement strategy we are about to describe, used in 'LibQUAL+ Lite,' could be used in ANY Web localsurvey with more than a few questions, to: (a)maximize response rate and (b)minimize burdens on respondents.
® LibQUAL+ ® Lite ® LibQUAL+ ® Lite is a survey methodology in which (a) ALL users answer a few, selected survey questions, but (b) the remaining survey questions are answered ONLY by a randomly- selected subsample of the users. Thus, (a) data are collected on ALL QUESTIONS, but (b) each user answers FEWER QUESTIONS, thus shortening the required response time!!!
