The learning objective of this assignment is to practice designing a structured survey versus an unstructured interview. These are different. For guidance on structured survey questions, please see pages 189-193 and 196-200 of your text. For guidance on interview questions, please see pages 190-191 and 194-196 of your text.
There are two parts to this assignment. You must complete the first part in order to have access to the second part.
Prepare and submit your response (see topic below for more guidance) by Wednesday, April 2 at 11:59 PM.
Complete two peer reviews by Saturday, April 5 at 11:59 PM. The peer reviews will be automatically assigned to you as soon as the due date for submission has passed – so these should be completed between Thursday and Saturday. Again, if you do not complete the first part you will not have access to the peer review process. Unlike our other peer review assignments, you will NOT be resubmitting again for instructor review so do your BEST JOB the first time around.
Submission (due by Wednesday at 11:59 PM)
This week you will be designing both a: 1) five question survey AND 2) five interview questions.
You have two options to complete this assignment.
Option 1: The first option is that you develop the survey versus interview questions around your research topic of interest (i.e., on the topic for which you completed your problem statement and literature review). Please prepare and submit:
Five questions and a response scale for each question that would be administered as a survey to your study participants.
Five open-ended interview questions. These would be administered during an interview or discussion with your study participants. Remember that these should not be framed as “yes” or “no” questions. If you do not know how to do this, please revisit last week and this week’s learning modules, as well as chapters 7 and 8 of your text.
– OR –
Option 2: If you do not want to use your research topic of interest, you may use the following scenario instead to develop the survey versus interview questions. The topic is homeless men and health care services. More specifically, you are trying to gather information on how they access health care services; the barriers to accessing health care services; and the quality of the services they receive. Please prepare and submit:
Five questions and a response scale for each that would be administered as a survey to a homeless man.
Five open-ended interview questions. These would be administered during an interview or discussion with a homeless man. Remember that these should not be framed as “yes” or “no” questions. If you do not know how to do this, please revisit last week and this week’s learning modules, as well as chapters 7 and 8 of your text.
