Respondents adjusted their ratings with VASs more often to maximize the precision of answers, which had a beneficial effect on data quality. No side effects like differences in means, higher dropout, more nonresponse, or higher response times were observed. Overall, the combination of semantic differentials and VASs results in a number of advantages. Potential for further research is discussed.</dcterms:abstract> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
