Abstract: There is wide agreement in the methodology community that the choice of data collection mode may affect the quality of response. In addition, the method of choice may also influence respondent behavior and feelings which may also impact the qual ity of data. This research examines response quality and respondent satisfaction measures compared across three data collection methods among male adolescent respondents. Results suggest that adolescents provide improved levels for several dimensions of response quality when participating in interview‑based research studies compared to text‑based methods such as electronic form and paper and pencil formats.
