In this webinar, Dr. Esther Tippmann will explain the Common Methods Bias - a well-documented phenomenon observed in research based on self-reported measures.
We often use surveys in which respondents are asked about their perceptions, feelings, attitudes or beliefs. Under certain circumstances such self-reported data can suffer from severe quality issues. It is the aim of this webinar to introduce some of these and discuss effective survey design remedies.
In this webinar we will cover:
  • Why we use self-report surveys
  • Practical illustrations on why it can be problematic
  • Data quality issues
  • Sources of Common Method Variances
  • Remedies to solve Common Method Variances
