Transcript of QFocus

Advantages of Close-ended Questions
easier and quicker to answer
answers are easier to compare
answers are easier to analyze
respondents are more likely to answer about sensitive topics
fewer irrelevant or confused answers to questions

Disadvantages of Close-ended Questions
don't require an opinion or knowledge of the subject
misinterpretation of a question can go unnoticed
distinctions between respondent answers may be blurred
clerical mistakes or marking the wrong response is possible
they force respondents to give simplistic responses to complex issues
they force people to make choices they would not make in the real world
Rules for Creating Questions
Advantages of Open-ended Questions
they permit an unlimited number of possible answers.
respondents can answer in detail and can qualify and clarify responses
unanticipated findings can be discovered
they permit adequate answers to complex issues
they permit creativity, self-expression, and richness of detail
they reveal a respondent's logic, thinking process, and frame of reference
Disadvantages of Open-ended Questions
different respondents give different degrees of detail in answers
responses may be irrelevant or buried in useless detail
questions may be too general for respondents who lose direction
a greater amount of respondent time, thought, and effort is necessary
respondents can be intimidated by questions

Focus Statement
"Stories teach us to not give up hope because there are times in our own journey when we mustn't give up hope. They teach us endurance because in our lives we are meant to endure. They carry messages that are older than the words themselves, messages that reach beyond the page.".
