Ecological Momentary Assessment and Experience Sampling

  • 3611 Accesses


This chapter is going to focus on ecological momentary assessment (EMA) and the experience sampling method (ESM) and I’ll refer to both as EMA. And I’m going to discuss about what they are, what the alternatives are to collect the same kind of information about a day, and then I’ll cover a little bit about how some folks are trying to incorporate this into the survey research.
