Ethnio runs logic on every response to help prevent fake or automated responses. Using an algorithm. Ethnio assigns a numeric score to every response, including many factors. Any response below a certain threshold will be marked as disqualified and hidden from your view. Some of the factors include:

  • Percentage of questions answered
  • Open-ended field length of response
  • Grammer
  • Name capitalization (ALL CAPS NAMES get a slightly lower and so do lowercase names)
  • Time-to-complete (the slower the better, since bots tend to be instant)
  • Complexity of open-ended answers. (if you ask your respondents single-line or paragraph questions, it helps Ethnio sift out fake responses)
  • IP Address
  • Location
  • Device
