VKC IDDRC Data Sciences Core (Core E) Lecture: Weeding Out the Bad from the Good: Strategies for Researchers Preventing and Identifying Invalid Online Survey Responses
Wednesday, September 20, 12-1 p.m.
Presenters: Rachel Schles, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of the Practice, Department of Special Education; Coordinator, Visual Disabilities Track; and Caroline Deheck, Special Education Graduate Student and Research Assistant
With the explosion of AI and machine language learning & modeling in the last few years, online surveys are seeing an increase in invalid, fraudulent, and/or bot responses mixed in with valid human responses. This session provides an overview of identifying and preventing invalid survey responses, including examples from the presenters’ experiences and the results from a recent survey of researchers conducting online surveys. The focus of the presentation will be discussing proactive strategies for invalid survey response management, including specific REDCap settings.
This discussion will be held in-person in Room 241, One Magnolia Circle Building, with a virtual option. Registration links for both are listed above. A limited number of boxed lunches will be available in-person -- first come, first served.
