Ensuring quality in crowdsourced platform by introducing a Platform ready certification, Sentiment analysis and Standard gold test.

A global phenomenon with minimal barrier to entry, crowdsourcing has transformed human force from mere consumers of products to active participants in value co-creation. The crowdsourcing ecosystem is one in which work is being re- defined as an online meritocracy in which skilled work is rewarded in real time and job training is imparted immediately via feedback loops. Under such working conditions, the diverse pool of untrained participants: workers and requester, often find themselves circling with mistrust and ambiguity with respect to result quality and task authorship. This indicates that there is a requirement for quality control mechanisms to account for a wide range behavior: bad task authorship, malicious workers, ethical workers, slow learners, etc.. Although many crowdsourced platforms offer clear guidelines, discussion forums and tutorial sessions to overcome some of these issues but, there is still a large percentage of workers and requesters unaware with the use of platforms. In this paper, we assess how crowd workers can produce a quality output by introducing below three proposed methods.
• Platform ready certifications
• Sentimental analysis system
• Gold Test
