Forced answering (FA) is a frequent answer format in online surveys that forces respondents to answer each question in order to proceed through the questionnaire. The underlying rationale is to decrease the amount of missing data. Despite its popularity, empirical research on the impact of FA on respondents’ answering behavior is scarce and has generated mixed findings. In fact, some quasi-experimental studies showed that FA has detrimental consequences such as increased survey dropout rates and faking behavior. Notably, a theoretical psychological process driving these effects has hitherto not been identified. Therefore, the aim of the present study was twofold: First, we sought to experimentally replicate detrimental effects of FA on online questionnaire data quality. Second, we tried to uncover an explanatory psychological mechanism. Specifically, we hypothesized that FA effects are mediated through reactance. Zero-order effects showed that FA increased state reactance and questionnaire dropout as well as reduced answer length in open-ended questions. Results of survival and mediation analyses corroborate negative FA effects on data quality and the proposed psychological process. [less ▲]

Relevance: At the beginning of the era of online surveys, these were programmed to be answered using desktop PCs or notebooks. However, due to technical development such as the increasing role of mobile devices, studies on online survey research detect an increase of questionnaires that are answered on mobile devices (md). However, survey navigation on md is different compared to PC: it takes place on a smaller screen and usually involves a touch pad rather than a mouse and a keyboard. Due to these differences in questionnaire navigation, some of the traditional used web question formats are no longer convenient to be answered on a md. The most common formats are matrix questions. To deal with this development, so called mobile-friendly or responsive-designs were developed, which change the layout of specific questions that are not convenient on a md into an alternative mobile-friendly-design. In case of matrixes, these were separated into item-by-item questions which are suggested to be more comfortable to answer on a mobile device. Research question: However, from a psychometric perspective the question whether these changes in question format produce comparable results is too often ignored. Therefore, this paper elucidates the following research question: Do different versions of responsive-designs actually produce equivalent response? Data & Methods: Using the data of the first two waves of the Germ and Emigration and Remigration Panelstudy we can base our analysis on more than 19.000 cases (appox. 7.000 using different md). As GERPS makes use of a responsive design, we are able to investigate measurement invariance between different md and desktop device groups. Results: As the data management is still in progress and will be finished in the end of October, we will be able to present first-hand information based on fresh data. However, first initial analyses reveal differences between md and desktop device versions. Added Value: Our study is one of the first that elucidates the equivalence of responsive design options. Thus, it enhances the perspective on the existence of possible new biases and error sources due to the increased use of md within web surveys. [less ▲]

General self-efficacy is a central personality trait often evaluated in surveys as context variable. It can be interpreted as a personal coping resource reflecting individual belief in one’s overall competence to perform across a variety of situations. The German-language Allgemeine-Selbstwirksamkeit-Kurzskala (ASKU) is a reliable and valid instrument to assess this disposition in the German-speaking countries based on a three-item equation. This study develops a French version of the ASKU and tests this French version for measurement invariance compared to the original ASKU. A reliable and valid French instrument would make it easy to collect data in the French-speaking countries and allow comparisons between the French and German results. Data were collected on a sample of 1,716 adolescents. Confirmatory factor analysis resulted in a good fit for a single-factor model of the data (in total, French, and German version). Additionally, construct validity was assessed by elucidating intercorrelations between the ASKU and different factors that should theoretically be related to ASKU. Furthermore, we confirmed configural and metric as well as scalar invariance between the different language versions, meaning that all forms of statistical comparison between the developed French version and the original German version are allowed.
