Quality Assurance in field starts with training; each interviewer receives minimum 3 hours of training, including Q/A session, training with respect to probing open-ended questions, mock calls, rebuttal training, and background training on the topic of study. Each study is assigned a floor manager who constantly monitors agents on the study, answers any questions they may have on the phones. Each interviewer calls are monitored via remote monitoring system and calls can be available to our clients. Questionnaires are always read verbatim to ensure that no interviewer bias occurs.
Furthermore, code lists are initially based on lifting 20% of verbatim responses.
