The Internet is increasingly being used as a medium for psychological research. To assess the validity of such efforts, an electronic version of Gangestad & Snyder's (1985) revised self-monitoring questionnaire was placed at a site on the World Wide Web. and compared with those from a group of 224 undergraduates who completed a paper-and-pencil version. The Internet-mediated version had similar psychometric properties to its conventional equivalent and compared favourably as a measure of self-monitoring. Results support the notion that Web-based personality assessment is possible, but stringent validation of test instruments is urged.
