Dear EvalTF,

In our last telco we discussed opening a group only survey about random sampling. This would then provide input to draft a first text.

Please add questions to the list below that may be relevant to draft a first text about random sampling. Here are a few from the last telco and my own additions. Please mark them with YES or NO to delete or keep and add questions as you like:

- How do you collect pages?
- How do you collect pages in web-applications?
- Is there a difference between large and small websites in the manner you collect the pages?
- Is there a difference between large and small websites in the size of the sample?
- Do you collect a random sample?
- Do you think random sampling is necessary? and why?
- What portion of your sample is randomly selected?
- How do you collect randomly (do you count pages..)?
- If you use tools for sampling?
- Are tools sufficient to collect a sample?
- Should the random sample be other pages than the ones already included in Step 3?
- ...
- ...
- ...

Sampling is now in our methodology in section 3.3 Step 3 Select a Representative Sample. The current version of the methodology lets you select a representative sample including Common Web Pages of the Website, Exemplar Instances of Web Pages, Other Relevant Web Pages and Complete Processes. Random sampling is not included.

The endresult for this survey would be about 10 to 15 questions.
We could set the max for answers to 100 words per question.
Kindest regards,

Eric
