A Free Audio-CASI Module for LimeSurvey | Survey Methods: Insights from the Field (SMIF)

  title={A Free Audio-CASI Module for LimeSurvey | Survey Methods: Insights from the Field (SMIF)},
  author={H. Beier},
Audio-enhanced computer-assisted self-interviewing (ACASI) has several advantages over computer-assisted self-interviewing without audio enhancement (CASI). Being able to listen to sound files of questions and answer options while proceeding through a questionnaire can increase interest in the survey, improve comprehension of survey questions and considerably lessen the burden of a self-administered interview, especially on target populations with reading difficulties. In addition, it has been… Expand

Taking the Audio Out of Audio-CASI
Audio computer-assisted self-interviewing (audio-CASI or ACASI) has been widely adopted around the world as a method for eliciting more candid responses to sensitive questions in surveys. While fewExpand
AUDIO AND VIDEO COMPUTER-ASSISTED SELF INTERVIEWING: Preliminary Tests of New Technologies for Data Collection.
A preliminary study testing a new technology for survey data collection: audio computer-assisted self interviewing demonstrated that both Audio- and Video-CASI systems work well even with subjects who do not have extensive familiarity with computers. Expand
Reducing Response Effects for Sensitive Questions: A Computer-Assisted Self Interview with Audio
MacInterview is a computer-assisted self-interview program designed to increase privacy for interviews that ask about potentially self-incriminating behavior and suggests that people would be more likely to tell the truth using the computer than using a written questionnaire or face-to-face interview.

Development and use of touch-screen audio computer-assisted self-interviewing in a study of American Indians.
Results indicate that the ACASI questionnaire is both an acceptable and a preferable mode of data collection in this population of American Indians. Expand
Audio-computerized self-interviewing versus face-to-face interviewing for research data collection at drug abuse treatment programs.
A-CasI was associated with greater reporting of potentially stigmatized drug, sex and HIV risk behaviors on a moderate number of questions and a large majority of participants who used A-CASI would like to be assigned to this method of data collection in future interviews. Expand
A Comparison of Audio Computer-Assisted Self-Interviews to Face-to-Face Interviews of Sexual Behavior Among Perinatally HIV-Exposed Youth
Boys were significantly more likely to report several sexual behaviors in the ACASI condition compared to FTF, whereas among girls no significant differences were found between the two conditions, and boys may disclose more sexual behavior when using computer-assisted interviews. Expand
How you ask the question really matters: A randomized comparison of four questionnaire delivery modes to assess validity and reliability of self-reported socially censured data in rural Zimbabwean youth
Results coupled with a systematic review of effect of questionnaire delivery mode on sexual behaviour reporting from developing countries provide strong evidence that ACASI significantly reduces bias, is feasible and acceptable in resource-poor settings with low computer literacy. Expand
Disclosure of sensitive behaviors across self-administered survey modes: a meta-analysis
A meta-analysis of survey experiments reporting 460 effect sizes revealed that computerized surveys led to significantly more reporting of socially undesirable behaviors than comparable surveys administered on paper. Expand
