What important elements of survey design and construction will you be utilizing in the operationalization and buildi of your survey? How will you design your survey (in terms of types of questions, response format, use of indexes or scales, composite measures, etc.)? The book is Reading: Chapter 8 in Baxter & Babbie Review Survey Protocol Instructions Begin Writing Survey Protocol Survey Protocol Instructions Your Survey Protocol is essentially your survey laid out with all of your chosen questions, questions types, answers, answer types, and other various design and constructions elements you choose to include, in a Word document as opposed to a live survey. As you reflect upon the information in Chapter 8, please be careful to construct your survey carefully with clear and appropriate open or close-ended questions. Consider content, wording, question order and compile a list of relevant survey questions. In your Survey Protocol, you should ask as many questions as you feel are necessary in order to obtain all the information you believe is relevant without redundancy. Your survey does not have a question limit (max or min), but please develop your survey with precision and the commendable effort you have all demonstrated thus far this semester. Also consider the limitations of many free online survey tools, such as Survey Monkey, which do have question limitations (https://www.surveymonkey.com/pricing/) though many question types will allow for work-arounds and you can opt to purchase a plan that will allow for more questions. Feel free to use the Sample Survey Questions provided as inspiration when designing your Survey Protocol. Keep in mind factors of your survey design and construction that might create bias, which will need to be avoided. Your Survey Protocol is due on Monday, March 30, 2015 by 11:30pm ET.
