SOCIOLOGY 311: PROFESSOR PHILLIPS STRUCTURED QUESTIONNAIRE EXERCISE Your task in this exercise is to develop a set of questions that can be used to test a simple bivariate hypothesis. You will administer the questions to a minimum of 30 people, check the inter-item correlations among closed-ended measures of your dependent variable to make sure it is appropriate to sum them into a composite index (internal consistency reliability), check the index against the open-ended question as an indication of convergent validity, and test your bivariate hypothesis both with your index and with your open-ended question. PART I: Writing the questionnaire: Your simple questionnaire will include one open-ended measure of your dependent variable, 6-10 closed ended measures of your dependent variable (which you will eventually sum together to create an index), and one key independent variable (which you hypothesize is related to your dependent variable in one way or another). Following the principles described in your text and in class, refine your questions to make them as good as you can, both in terms of their content and in the physical structure of your questionnaire. All questions will be evaluated in terms of the basic principles described in class and in your text. 1. Dependent variable
