Common mistakes in study implementation


Not collecting the required data to test your hypotheses


Biases and errors: sample coverage, leading questions, incomplete responses, usability problems, out-of-date terminology


Processing errors: coding processes, data editing & validation, weighting errors, etc. which impact the analysis and interpretation of the data


Losing the study’s purpose during implementation


Lack of documentation and transparency, reduced likelihood that study will be repeated or cited

We routinely hear the statement: This is not rocket science – we can handle it on our own. And we agree—it is not rocket science. It involves the study of humans, which is much more complex than the highly predictable science of rocketry.
