Caption Contest - September 2022 - Results

The judges found the winning caption to be “Ga-ga in ga-ga out," written by Jonathan Boucher, a student at Colorado University in Boulder. Jonathan’s caption can be a vehicle to discuss the old GIGO adage (Garbage In Garbage Out) indicating how poor data may well produce poor results. An honorable mention this month goes to Jim Alloway from EMSQ Associates for his caption, “It’s not a valid survey if your participants don’t understand the questions.” Jim’s caption aligns well with teaching about response errors such as when subjects misunderstand a question and how that may bias survey results.
