Detecting Careless Respondents in Survey Data: Floodlight Detection of Careless Respondents
The current paper introduces a novel method for detecting careless respondents, namely, floodlight detection of careless respondents. This novel method is composed of two steps: (1) creating a nonsense regression model and then (2) testing a moderator role of response time on the nonsense regression model with Johnson-Neyman technique. An illustration of the floodlight detection of careless respondents method was performed with online survey data collected from 148 Turkish participants.
