Crowdsourcing is a model which allows practitioners to access a relatively inexpensive and scalable workforce. However, due to loose worker-employer relationships, skill diversity of the crowd and anonymity of participants, it tends to result in lower quality compared to traditional ways of doing work. Thus crowdsourcing practitioners have to rely heavily on certain quality assurance techniques to make sure that the end product complies with the quality requirements. Quality assurance

This paper introduces cost models of common quality assurance techniques that may be applied in crowdsourcing and describes a proposed cost of quality approach for analyzing quality related costs.
