SurveyCTO Presentation Series: How IPA Peru Used SurveyCTO’s WhatsApp Plug-in to Improve Response Rates

Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is a global nonprofit organization that works to solve global poverty with evidence. Founded in 2002, IPA has worked in 52 countries and conducted hundreds of evaluations and built relationships with key decision-makers in those areas to drive their research.

In this webinar, a team of researchers from IPA Peru will walk us through a research project that measured educators’ preferences and feelings on government support for re-opening schools after COVID-19 lockdowns. In July 2021, the Peruvian government decided to re-open schools and give principals the ability to adopt the opening plan that they felt best fit their schools.

IPA’s project involved baseline, midline, and endline assessments of school principals and they made innovative use of SurveyCTO’s WhatsApp plug-in to send follow-up communication and reminders. The result was great improve in survey response rates and reduced attrition. If you run assessments, work in education, or are curious about ways to integrate messaging apps like WhatsApp into your data collection workflows, this is one webinar you absolutely need to attend!
