Through videos, screencasts, and slides, SurveyCTO’s online training course introduces new users to the platform and helps experienced users refresh their skills. Module 1 features a quick-start video, overviews of SurveyCTO features, and exclusive insights from Dobility’s founder and CEO, Dr. Chris Robert. Module 2 delves deeper into form design and encryption for data security. Module 3 offers in-depth instruction for data collection in both online and offline settings.
In Module 4: Monitoring Data Collection, you’ll master how to:
- Monitor incoming data at individual submissions and aggregate levels with the Data Explorer, SurveyCTO’s built-in monitoring and visualization tool.
- Set up automated quality checks to flag outliers, suspicious distributions and means, values that violate frequency or numeric thresholds, and error-prone submissions.
- Configure the review and corrections workflow to review submissions before they are released for publishing or export.
- Customize and save monitoring workbooks.
