Tool development: software for the Computer-Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI)

This project encompasses the compilation of input for questionnaire content and questionnaire improvements from the international group of researchers and from interviewers before and during pretest and field rehearsal.

Since May 2017, professor Hendrik Jürges leads the process as "Head of questionnaire development". An important part of the work is the collaboration with software developers on implementation and refinement of the questionnaire which takes place in close cooperation with the testing team.

Analyses on item quality with internal data releases, checks of translation quality an analyses of interview and item duration are being conducted. The work progress is being presented regularly at internal SHARE conferences. Documentation of the generic English CAPI in a cross-wave overview is another vital part of the work.
