Insufficient Effort Responding: Impact in Survey Data and Approaches for Detection

12:00 PM – 1:30 PM ET

Jason Huang is an Associate Professor in the School of Human Resources and Labor Relations at Michigan State University. He received his PhD in Organizational Psychology from Michigan State University in 2012. Professor Huang’s research addresses two broad content areas: (a) personality and adaptability at work – how stable traits and dynamic processes enable individuals to adapt to various work situations; (b) training and transfer – what factors facilitate individuals’ skill acquisition and subsequent applications. He also conducts methodological research on insufficient effort responding. In 2018, Dr. Huang received the Academy of Management, Best Conference Paper Award. His recent published intellectual contributions are as follows:

  • Li, A., Liao, C., Shao, P., & Huang, J. L. (2021). Angry but not deviant: Employees’ prior-day deviant behavior toward the family buffers their reactions to abusive supervisory behavior. Journal of Business Ethics.
  • Li, A., Shaffer, J. A., Wang, Z., & Huang, J. L. (2021). Work-Family Conflict, Perceived Control, and Health, Family, and Wealth: A 20-Year Study. Journal of Vocational Behavior.
  • Huang, J. L., & DeSimone, J. A. (2021). Insufficient effort responding as a potential confound between survey measures and objective tests. Journal of Business and Psychology.


Insufficient effort responding (IER) occurs when some study participants fail to comply with instructions and instead respond carelessly or randomly. This webcast will solidify attendees’ conceptual understanding of how the presence of IER in survey data can impact research findings. We will discuss different approaches researchers can adopt to detect IER in survey data, considering practical constraints on the effectiveness of these approaches.
