*Captcha Verification (or Completely Automated Public Turing Test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is a common web technique used to help ensure that your respondents are real humans and not a program written to spam your survey. In a Captcha Verification, the respondent is presented with a picture (or "challenge") of words or characters, and the respondent must correctly type out those characters in order to proceed.


General Survey: Response Weighting

November 2, 2016 - Qualtrics has added Response Weighting to the core Insight Platform. Users can now weight responses by up to three variables with near-limitless values to ensure that aggregate metrics reflect the desired respondent profile. Weights are configured in the Data & Analysis tools and weighted metrics can be used in Results Reports or Vocalize Dashboards.
