This paper describes the rationale for using a World Wide Web page linked with a database to share perceptions among diverse stakeholders in a field-based teacher education setting. The efficiency of the Web as an inquiry tool can make applied and empowering research possible despite severe time constraints. The second section of the paper gives an example of how this idea was tested in practice at Lewis-Clark State College (Idaho). The key question of the study was, "How much time and effort will it take to prepare the survey and analyze the results?" The perceptions of college faculty members, K-8 teachers, and teacher education students in a new field-based program were shared, analyzed, and commented on using easily constructed Web pages linked with a database. It is concluded that using a Web-based survey with a database is time efficient. (MES)
