PureSpectrum Announces PureScore™ 2.0

PureSpectrum has announced the release of PureScore™ 2.0. PureScore™ 2.0 builds upon PureScore™ 1.0 introduced in the spring of 2020 and ushers in a suite of powerful new enhancements and techniques to ensure that researchers continue to have the utmost confidence in the data collected through the PureSpectrum Marketplace and Insights Platforms.

PureScore™ is a comprehensive, advanced machine learning-driven, scoring system designed to measure individual survey respondent quality regardless of source. The PureScore™ model detects survey-taking patterns across billions of survey sessions per year. The further that a respondent’s fraud markers and behaviors deviate from the ideal, the lower their PureScore™. Respondents with a low PureScore™ are blocked from taking PureSpectrum surveys. Its efficacy is proven through ongoing research-on-research, which will explore the consistency and accuracy of data when using PureScore™ 2.0. PureScore™ 2.0 introduces an updated and enhanced algorithm that:

• Has learned, evolved, and become more powerful based on the data from 10 billion+ sessions since its inception just 3 years ago.

• Incorporates Data Quality for All, a vetted respondent behavioral assessment now expanded to all respondents based on a variety of trigger scenarios prior to survey entry to ensure active, attentive, and articulate respondents.

• Deploys Artificial Intelligence (AI) fuzzy logic which allows PureScore™ 2.0 to take a more nuanced approach to determine and prevent duplicate responses versus conventional Boolean logic approaches.

• Dramatically reduces “ghost” completes with powerful link security available for use with any survey platform.


The increasingly powerful model within PureScore™ 2.0 provides researchers with confidence in their data despite a rapidly changing data quality and fraud landscape in the online market research industry. With PureScore™ 2.0 integrated with the PureSpectrum Marketplace Platform for sample acquisition and management, the industry has the solution it needs to reduce risk and increase confidence in data and decisions.
