Abstract

The results and outcomes of surveys are often used to make inferences that are later used to make big decisions and therefore it is important for survey results to be valid. Survey research assumes that respondents will respond in a way that best reflects them or their opinions, however, there has been evidence to indicate that this assumption is often unmet, specifically when respondents carelessly respond. There has been much effort in detecting and removing careless respondents but less attention has been paid with preventing such carelessness. In order to prevent such carelessness, there has to be evidence to indicate that there are specific types of careless responding so that researchers can know what they are specifically preventing. One type of careless responding that may have merit is careless responding due to survey fatigue. This research proposal suggests a method that may provide more evidence for careless responding due to survey fatigue.

Tired of survey fatigue?

The results and outcomes of surveys are often used to make inferences that are later used to make big decisions and therefore it is important for survey results to be valid. Survey research assumes that respondents will respond in a way that best reflects them or their opinions, however, there has been evidence to indicate that this assumption is often unmet, specifically when respondents carelessly respond. There has been much effort in detecting and removing careless respondents but less attention has been paid with preventing such carelessness. In order to prevent such carelessness, there has to be evidence to indicate that there are specific types of careless responding so that researchers can know what they are specifically preventing. One type of careless responding that may have merit is careless responding due to survey fatigue. This research proposal suggests a method that may provide more evidence for careless responding due to survey fatigue.
