I have placed a first draft for the questionnaire of my Masters dissertation. I have received the following feedback:
“On the questionnaire, I have some concerns. The first is to do with the quantitative side of things. 20 respondents isn’t going to allow you to make any claims based on representativeness of the sample, so I’m not sure it’s worth asking questions that will generate statistics. A better approach might be to ask more open questions (in place of the yes/no ones), and then to analyse the answers qualitatively.
You’d still have the issue of representativeness here, but I think you can do more with quotes than with statistics (e.g. it’s more interesting and worthwhile to compare varied perspectives from quotes than to state that 20 per cent of respondents said “yes” to X question, but we don’t know whether they’re representative of the population as a whole).
The second concern is about the phrasing of some of your questions. If you ask someone “Do you think that Syrian refugees are taking employment opportunities from you?”, for example, they might not have thought that before, but the way the question is worded might lead them to say yes now that you’ve suggested that this might be something that happens. A better question would be something along the lines of “What impact do you think Syrian refugees have had on the labour market in Lebanon?”, perhaps following that up with “Do you think the arrival of Syrian refugees has had an impact on your employment prospects personally?”. There are lots of sources that should be able to help you with question design.”
I would like to have your support on the :
– Adjust the questions of the Questionnaire to be qualitative as per the comments above.
– Add relevant questions to my subject as per the comments
– Explain briefly the methodology, how many respondents, etc.
– Take all the comments into consideration
