This working paper draws on paradata from a range of sources to describe the operation of the Computer Assisted Web Interviewing (CAWI) element of the sequential mixed mode experiment implemented on the Innovation Panel from Wave 5. It extends the technical reports for Waves 5 and 6 and aims to identify features of the approach that could be taken forward in future mixed mode approaches –particularly in relation to maximising response via CAWI. It also describes the nature of CAWI completion and thereby contributes to data quality improvement and understanding.
