With the fast-growing penetration of smartphones andother mobile media, survey researchers are faced with the challenge of how to make use of themin surveys while ensuring high data quality and minimizing bias in the coverage (Watson,Zamith, Cavanah & Lewis, 2015). It is especially important to note that Web surveys are nowdisplayed on different devices with different screen sizes and entry methods.
