Interview termination status
The interview status code defines the outcome of the interview from the perspective of the interviewing program. Possible values are defined in the TerminateStatus type definition, and are as follows:
The interview completed.
The interview stopped for some reason before it could be completed.
Setting this status does not prevent the respondent restarting the interview by using the browser's Back button to go back to a previous page and choosing an answer that takes a different path through the interview. To prevent this, either write code in the sample management script to stop the interview being restarted or use the tsCompleted status.
