Research in brief : using mobile phones to collect daily experience data from college undergraduates
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This research brief describes our recent efforts collecting daily experience data from college undergraduates at a large midwestern U.S. university through mobile phone text messaging. By daily experience data, we mean data that are collected at multiple points from individuals within their natural context, over a period of time. This approach to data collection provides a way to study phenomena under the conditions in which they naturally occur and to examine how those phenomena progress over time or across contexts (Bolger, Davis, & Rafaeli, 2003).--Page 343.
