Definition: 

Data entry with a review at time of entry. Heads up data entry requires subject-matter knowledge by the individuals entering the data. Data entry is slower, but data review/adjustment is reduced since simple inconsistencies in responses are found earlier in the survey process. This mode is very effective when the interviewer or respondent enter data during the interview (CAI).
