Finished interview rejected

A number of methods, both automatic and manual, are employed to ensure high credibility of answers collected in surveys. These methods are used to decide whether your finished interview is accepted or rejected based on quality concerns.

Many surveys will check the time you took to answer the questions and decide if it’s likely that you had enough time to read everything properly.
Some surveys can perform plausibility checks between answers given to separate questions, or they use trap questions that test if you are reading the instructions carefully.

Your interview may also be rejected if you give an answer that is known to be false. For instance if you state that you own a motorbike from a brand that doesn’t actually make motorbikes.

Typing a bunch of random letters into a textbox as a response may also lead to your interview being rejected.

Furthermore separate interviews may be compared to each other and rejected as a group if they appear identical as though they have been filled out by the same person.
