This course is designed to familiarise participants with a powerful and efficient method of testing survey questions called Cognitive Interviewing. Cognitive interviewing itself encompasses a range of methods. The most popular ones include think-alouds, probing, and observation. Other techniques include paraphrasing, rating tasks, response latency measurement and card sort classification tasks. Each of these methods will be discussed in the course as well as current trends and issues in cognitive interviewing methodology. The course will include practical information on how to implement the various methods as well as “hands-on” sessions where participants will have the chance to practice the major methods.
Who will benefit?
The course will benefit anyone new to cognitive interviewing as well as those who have experience in cognitive interviewing, but would like to brush up on their knowledge and skills. The course is particularly appropriate for those who anticipate conducting a survey who wish to learn this powerful tool for piloting their questionnaires.
Participants will achieve an awareness of the critical issues and techniques in conducting a cognitive interview and have increased their own ability to do cognitive interviewing.
