Research question

“What are predictors for compliance with the Experience Sampling Method in children and adolescents and how does this compliance affect mental health outcomes?”


Many mobile mental Health (mHealth) interventions use the Experience Sampling Method (ESM), in which participants respond to multiple surveys per day to self-monitor their mental state. It is important to ensure participants compliance with this procedure to ensure mHealth interventions efficacy. My study examines various factors that can impact ESM compliance in children and adolescents and explores how it relates to the development of well-being and positive and negative affect. Hereby, I not only examine compliance as the average number of completed surveys, but also explore different temporal patterns of compliance, and its relation to momentary emotional states.
