The most current version for the U.S. of the Automated Self-Administered 24-Hour (ASA24) Dietary Assessment Tool is ASA24-2018. There are also Canadian and Australian versions of ASA24; however, the 2016 versions of ASA24-Canada and ASA24-Australia are still the most recent versions of these tools.
As with ASA24-2016, the user interface for the 2018 version employs a responsive design, meaning the ASA24 system can be used on smartphones and tablets, in addition to laptops and desktops. This allows a broad range of participants to enter dietary intake data at any time and from any location with internet service.
ASA24-2018 includes all of the features in the 2016 version of ASA24. The following features are new to the 2018 versions of ASA24:
- A feature that enables Respondents to report, save and modify recipes.
- Nutrient, food group and supplement databases include:
- System requirements and accessibility
- View ASA24-2018 Respondent demonstration site
- Evaluation and validation
- Register a study
- Help Guides for Respondents
Researchers using the 2018 version of the ASA24 system are encouraged to contact the ASA24 Support Team if there are tips that should be included in future troubleshooting or participant guides and to report bugs that are encountered using either the Respondent or Researcher websites.
ASA24-2018 was funded by the following NIH Institutes and Offices: National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences and Division of Cancer Prevention, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), and the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) and Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS).
