Your link is not live so it's not possible to click on the link and be taken through to the qualtrics survey.

Your survey seems to centre on grocery.com but your message does not mention this. Many of the questions need a not relevant or not applicable answer option. The survey is very simplistic.

Perhaps you should revisit the questionnaire. I tried but as I do not do any on line shopping for grocery it would not accept answers none on every input.
You could structure the questionnaire to establish first if the person did on line grocery shopping and if not either stop the survey or jump to a more relevant bit if there are any. I do online shopping but not grocery.

Only links within Amazon are clickable any external links need to be copy and pasted. Amazon try and discourage external links in fact they will often not publish reviews if they contain external links.

The initial post had been deleted by the time I got here.

Was this a genuine thing or an other of those £$%^&* "surveys" from *&$%^ scamming bas7&^6$ who promise all sorts (like a password you weren't warned about before downloading an 8GB file that needs to be unlocked) for completing their "5 minute" surveys that actually takes 2 hours of very intrusive phishing and always end up insisting you give them a mobile number that is then subscribed to some £5 a day service that delivers you more adverts?

... or not?

It looked genuine but badly structured. I do worry about the educational standards of graduates these days from what I recall it was for a MSc it read as more GCSE.

I would expect a properly structured survey to stop at the point never was entered if there were to be no other questions other than grocery shopping.

I have seen a number (5?) of "students" doing various surveys on the Amazon forums over the last few years. Usually they crop up in the cookery/food related forums. They usually contain a claim to be at "such n' such" university and need hep with their dissertation/coursework. The details change from one request to the next, but they are always hosted by Grocery.com. They never respond to questions, and if they are ever challenged over the validity of their research claims, they disappear and delete the OP. This leads me to believe they are not what they claim to be and most likely it is a marketing exercise. Then again I'm just a cynical old git.

If it was for a dissertation then they deserve a fail as this is not a valid way to collect statistics.

"How interesting do you really expect that to be? "

So why should anybody bother to reply?

"If it was for a dissertation then they deserve a fail as this is not a valid way to collect statistics."

Not if their dissertation was a comparison of the various statistic gathering techniques.

Any dissertation should be based on a valid method of data gathering : which this was not.
