A university with a wide variety of scientifically-designed, on-line surveys is still very much dependent on the potential pool of subjects to respond.. In this paper we review university wide and course centric surveys to consider the effects of incentives and possible disincentives to participate. The university's LMS is an important component in the analysis. Recommendations are made for further research in e-learning using LMS data.
