The Survey Kit
- Arlene Fink - UCLA, Los Angeles, USA
Research Methods & Evaluation (General) | Social Research Methods | Survey Research
Each of the 10 volumes contain checklists, warnings of things to avoid, examples of what does and doesn't work, and, new to this edition, exercises with answers and a glossary at the end of each volume.
"The Survey Kit is an easy-to-understand, easy-to-follow, comprehensive guide for the novice survey researcher. In addition, it provides useful information about some qualitative research techniques such as interviews, focus groups, observational analysis, and content analysis. Pedagogical features in each volume such as checklists, reasonable resources needed, tips, and decision matrices help students focus on important aspects of the survey process and provide them with a sense of real life application. Detailed discussions of personal interviewing (survey and in-depth), focus group techniques, and risks and odds are welcome additions to the new volumes."
