Dear SuSo team,
It is possible to retrieve information on surveys deleted that were started on interviewer and then deleted from the tablet without ever being uploaded to the server? I assume it’s not but we would appreciate your help with retrieving any and all information about such cases.
For a bit of context, we have some experimentation embedded into our survey and we suspect that the enumerators are gaming the study. We believe (in fact we are almost certain that this is the case) that when an interview case is assigned to a certain treatment the interviewers simply restart the survey until they get a favorable randomization.
This is not a pre-assigned survey and the randomization is based on the internally generated random number.
We don’t necessarily need to retrieve the entire survey, but having any information (e.g. timestamps) that could help us identify the cases for which this happened would be a huge advantage.
Thanks in advance,
