What is Field and Device audit?

Field and Device Audit is an exclusive feature of QuestionPro offline app that allows you to verify and eliminate fraudulent survey data collection. By using various on-site recordings and reviews, you can now judge if the mobile survey data entered by a respondent is authentic or fraudulently generated by the researcher.

This feature is particularly helpful when our clients and users send employees or external vendors for on-site data collection, away from their office premises where there is lack of quality control mechanisms.

How can I set up a survey for auditing in offline app?

  • Step 1: Go to: Mobile >> Registration >> Click on Device Name >> Audit

  • Step 2:
    • First turn on the Device Audit Option.
    • Next you will need to select the survey for which you would like to enable the Device Audit.
    • Record Audio: You can now record the audio while respondents answer the survey. Start and End Question: Specify the limit points (i.e. start and end question) where the audio should get recorded.
    • Duration (Seconds): We recommend using this option if you have a long survey, this will limit the audio recording time.
    • To capture image and location, you need to specify whether you wish to capture the image and location at the beginning of the survey or end of the survey or at both occasions.
    • To capture audio, picture or location at the start, end or between the survey questions, please make sure to add a page break between questions. If all the questions are on the same page, audit data will not be consistent.
