surveys for social science –

Research is fundamental in the social sciences. A common data collection method is the survey. Let’s look at the survey as a social scientist.

Now, let’s discuss the merits and flaws of this survey instrument.

For the initial post, address the following:

  • Which questions would you add?
  • Which would you delete?
  • What questions would you change?
  • What questions would you keep the same?
  • How are survey questions important to the interviewer and the subject being researched?
  • Why is it important to ask the appropriate questions that are relative and will be effective?

As we discuss these initial discussion questions, please begin thinking about the questions you will be asking for the interview assignment this week and their importance to you as you explore the experiences of others in the helping professions.
