I read an article [*] today which suggested asking participants for
biographical information before starting the survey.  Also, it was
suggested to ask about the seriousness of the participant.  For example:

How serious are you about participating in this survey?

( ) earnest desire to make a contribution to science
( ) somewhere inbetween
( ) looking for something to pass the time

Reips claimed that these kinds of questions help draw participants into
the experiment and reduce the attrition rate.

Experimenting. Experimental Psychology, 49 (4), 243-256.
