Research and Development in Audio-Recorded Interviewing Part II
Thissen, M. R., & Sattaluri, S. (2006, May). Research and Development in Audio-Recorded Interviewing Part II. Presented at International Field Directors and Technologies Conference, Montréal, Canada.
Performance metrics, MP3 files, alien routers and survey research: what do they have in common? The answer is quality assurance and process improvement for large surveys conducted at the US Census Bureau and at RTI. We describe recent technological steps to improve computer audio-recorded interviewing (CARI) at these two organizations, including test results, Blaise development efforts, options for field monitoring, a web-based interface for reviewing sound files and potential implementation concerns.
