From the Paper:

"Attitude surveys may be used administered in a number of different ways. One can use printed forms, e-mail, or electronic formats. Many survey questionnaires are self administered. Some attitude surveys can be completed anonymously and in the individual's spare time, whereas some environments, like schools, prefer a controlled environment. Either of these methods can be employed whether the survey is done online or paper based. Depending on the objective of the attitude survey, options exist with regard to data collection."
