NASA surveys visitors to its home page

NASA is asking a random sample of its home page visitors what they think of its central Web site.

The public affairs office has managed the NASA headquarters home page for seven years, and officials want to know more about how the diverse audience uses the site, said Brian Dunbar, the Internet services manager.

Beta survey software from Compuware Corp. of Farmington Hills, Mich., randomly shows about 5 percent of site visitors a pop-up window asking them to take the survey, Dunbar said.

The application, written in JavaScript, poses about 20 questions, mostly answered on a scale of 1 (low) to 10 (high). The survey will be live through mid-November.

Eventually the agency will offer the survey application to other agencies through the Treasury Department's Federal Consulting Group, he said.
