It really depends on what you mean by 'better'.
Are the response rates themselves the DVs in your experiment (e.g., is
your experiment actually about what is the best way to conduct a
survey)? If so, what are your hypotheses?
If you're simply wanting to make a statement about how well the two
modes of surveying participants for your study went, then I'd be
inclined just to say that one had a higher response rate than the
other, and was therefore 'better' for this survey at this time with
this population. I'd think that relative success for different modes
of undertaking a survey is more a qualitative than quantitative
Does that help? Or have I missed something?
