Exercise # 4 Questionnaire Construction Survey research is a popular communication research method appropriate for making descriptive studies of large populations. Communication researchers use surveys to measure knowledge, perceptions, feelings, self-reported behaviors, dispositional states and traits, and communication networks. The goal of this exercise is for you to understand how to construct a questionnaire and how the survey itself affects reliability and validity of the data. Refer to chapter 8 and to the in-class handout if you have questions. For each of the following open-ended questions, construct a closed-ended question that could be used in a questionnaire: a) Can you describe how members of your family typically communicate with each other?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
