Self-report questionnaires are one of the most popular tools used to learn about one’s thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and opinions. While designing, administering and scoring questionnaires, you should be aware that participants vary in their willingness or ability to provide honest and accurate information. In order to achieve reliable and valid results you should attempt to detect participants that provided particularly small amounts or no valid information at all. During this seminar several methods will be presented that may help you detecting individual protocols that were filled by inattentive, linguistically incompetent, deliberately manipulating, or randomly responding participants.
