How to analyze When What Kind

Standardization Meaning of “Standardized” questionnaire: Identical questions Identical format Identical response recording process Standardization creates reliability Do not use a non-standardized questionnaire unless you want unreliable results

Meaning of “Standardized” questionnaire:

Identical questions

Identical format

Identical response recording process

Standardization creates reliability

Do not use a non-standardized questionnaire unless you want unreliable results

Can You Use Existing Designs? Published, authenticated questionnaires are invaluable: Already standardized. Allow comparison of your findings with other studies that used the tool. Saves time of having to design and test a new questionnaire. http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/full/328/7451/1312?maxtoshow=&HITS=10&hits=10&RESULTFORMAT=& fulltext =Boynton+PM%2C+Wood+GW%2C+Greenhalgh+T.+Hands-on+guide+to+questionnaire+research%3A+reaching+beyond+the+white+middle+classes&searchid=1&FIRSTINDEX=0&resourcetype=HWCIT

How Reliable is the Design? Participants answers may not reflect reality Example: Self-completed questionnaires on dessert intake only measure what participants say they have ingested not what has actually been consumed. Must account for original context of questionnaire Time period Culture Country, etc.

Types of questions Open questions: answers not preset; allow participants to create own responses Closed: give participants options e.g. check boxes, mark a scale, select an answer from list, etc.

Pros and Cons Open questions: pros: potentially unlimited range of answers cons: more difficult to translate into data--takes a lot more time and effort to do Closed questions: pros: easy to convert answers to empirical data cons: can be frustrating to participants, potential range of answers limited by researchers
