ASA24® Instructions for Study Staff & Respondents

The following documents have been created by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as resources for study staff and Respondents. In addition, we invite ASA24 users to share resources that they have developed for their own studies so that we may make them available to others - if you have a resource that you would like to share, please contact the ASA24 Help Desk.

When participants are using ASA24-2016, they can also obtain help through three different buttons in the ASA24 system:

Help button – used to access the Help Center where participant has access to frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Yellow question mark icon – used to get help specific to the question a participant is being asked to answer

Home icon - used to navigate back to the home screen where participants can view all the foods, drinks, and supplements already reported
