Control questions, or filter questions
Test questions, or as they are sometimes called filter questions, have a variety of functions. They are designed to check. Op-
ratively awareness, competence, objectivity of self-assessment. These questions are also designed to screen out some respondents who do not regard a number of issues.
Sometimes respondents answer questions, without being informed on a particular issue. In matters of principle, it is necessary to check whether respondents know that particular event. "Tell me, please, whether You get the newspaper "Izvestia" daily or it so happens that on some days she doesn't come?". "Whether it is connected with bad work of mail, or does it happen for any other reasons?". Essentially, this is a trick question, designed to test the knowledge of the Respondent. The newspaper "Izvestia" came out six times a week. If the Respondent does not know exactly how many times a week out of this newspaper, the credibility of his estimates of materials can be reduced. Usually such questions in the analysis are not taken into account.
Often the Respondent is inclined to exaggerate their knowledge, abilities, seem in a more favorable light, to present yourself more knowledgeable than it actually is. I say "often" because in life always have to face it. No need to go far for an example, hand on heart, tell me, did you ever wanted at least quite a bit to embellish yourself?
In principle, a small embellishment itself is not so bad. Perhaps it even plays a positive role, several increases tone. However, in a sociological study of such a seemingly innocent exaggeration of their knowledge can sometimes lead to distorted responses and significantly affect the accuracy of the information.
Control questions to test the sincerity is a surprising feature, despite the fact that most of these questions are not that difficult to understand and accurate answer, is always, and sometimes quite a large part of the respondents is wrong. Take the psychological test Eysenck series of questions on the falsity or, to put it softer, for insincerity. A number of studies where these issues were introduced in the sociological questionnaire was obtained a very interesting distribution.
