Goal of the Exercise: Develop an in-depth interview schedule (guide) or a survey based on
your proposed research question. Follow the steps below to complete the exercise.
1. For this exercise, you can type your answers in single space, no larger than 12-inch font.
2. Next, write your final proposed research question. Remember that your research question
should be clearly stated at this point. You can use the question you have proposed in
previous research assignments and/or exercises, incorporating any feedback that we have
provided in modifying your proposed research question.
3. After stating your research question, complete the remaining section of the exercise by
following the steps outlined below in creating questions.
Step 1: Write down your research question. Then write down the variables that you will use to
measure the main concepts in your research project. Refer to your previous exercises for the
variables you will use, incorporating any feedback that we have provided on those variables. List
additional variables you have included since completing the previous exercises.
Step 2: Develop four (4) categories based on the variables for your proposed study. Under each
category you develop fifteen (15) open-ended interview questions that will measure the variables
for your study. Make sure questions follow a logical order and ask relevant questions for what
you would like to find out from interviewees to answer your research question.
If you are proposing to do survey research, for each of the four (4) categories you have created,
come up with at least fifteen (15) survey questions for each category. At least four must be
closed-ended questions, and only one of the closed-ended questions can have Yes/No
responses. Use only one open-ended question per category.
**Develop at least fifteen (15) questions under each of the four (4) category you construct.
1. State your final research question.
2. List the key variables for each concept (use the concepts as headers).
3. Write interview or survey questions, again using concepts as headers.
