Seminar Series; Improving Data Quality for Web Surveys in Real Time through Predictive Modeling Using Paradata.
Paradata are a rich source of data that are collected through little additional effort by researchers. However, paradata are often underutilized. This study suggests a novel approach to use paradata to alter the survey itself in real time in order to improve data quality.
The increase in web surveys allows researchers to collect a variety of paradata alongside traditional survey responses. Some paradata, such as response times, enjoy a long tradition in survey research, but others, such as window/tab switching, are only rarely used in survey research.
