The current work deals with modelling of response error components in supervised interview-reinterview surveys. The model considers several stages of an interactive process to obtain and record a response. The response process is evaluated as, controller-interviewer-respondent-interviewer-controller interaction setting under a supervised interviewing process. The allocation of controllers, interviewers and respondents is made by a hierarchical design for the interview-reinterview process. In addition, a coder error component is also added to the above proposed model. The proposed model operates under two major sub-models, namely an error detection model and response model.
