3precision and reliability. It needs to directly answer the research questions and consistently provide accurate data. (Baraceros 2016, 96). For better understanding of this module, you have to be familiar with the terms discussed below: SURVEY It is a data-gathering tool that uses set of questions to get facts or information. It measures attitudes, perceptions, opinions, and intentions of a relatively large number of respondents on specific research questions. Surveys can be done in the form of interview or questionnaire. INTERVIEW An interview is a data-gathering instrument that uses planned questions to qualitatively gather data from the respondent. However, questions are answered orally or sometimes using electronic devices such as mobile phones and another wireless device. QUESTIONNAIRE A questionnaire is a research instrument that contains series of questions for the purpose of getting specific information. It can be done through face to face or online. One of the advantages of questionnaire is that it provides a quick way of gathering data, especially for large populations. However, it can be less effective if a respondent lies due to social desirability. This happens when a respondent gives false information to keep a positive image of himself. There are two common types of question that you can use when making a questionnaire: open-ended and closed-ended questions. 1.Open-ended It is a type of question that allows the respondents to express their answers in their own words. Open ended questions do not limit respondents to a single answer. Respondents can have unlimited response options and can answer questions in whatever manner they want. Examples: 1.What kind of books do you enjoy reading? 2.How do you improve your reading habits? 2.Closed-ended It is a type of question that expects a specific answer based on the pre-decided categories. Close-ended questions can be in the form of dichotomous (Yes or No), multiple choice, or rating scale (strongly agree/agree/disagree/strongly disagree). Examples: a.Dichotomous Question (Yes or No) Do you like reading? Yes No b.Multiple Choice Question How satisfied are you with your reading habits? Very satisfied
