After revising your survey draft, you are now having an opportunity to: Pre-test your revised survey with 5 persons. In order to have enough data to report, enter each of these participants 5 times (i.e., each participant will count as 5 participants) so that there is a total of 25 participants. Report the results in brief (i.e., not exceeding 1 page). You may get more feedback from one or two persons; if so, emphasize reporting the changes you will make to the draft questionnaire or interview guide. Using the data from your pre-test that has been entered into the file you created in M5: Assignment 1, run in SPSS some appropriate statistical analysis to describe the socio-demographics of your sample. This should include some frequency distributions for nominal (and, possibly, ordinal) data and some metrics (e.g., mean, median, etc.) for interval data. Create a summated, summary scale (or index) from one set of items, e.g., job satisfaction, and report on the internal consistency of this scale (or index). Assess the reliability of at least one scale or index comprised of several indicators within your survey (use SPSS to generate Cronbach’s alpha). Now revisit your survey questionnaire, e.g., the survey instrument, and finalize it. The survey instrument should have a sufficient number of items to demonstrate reasonable reliability for the construct(s) of interest. To receive full credit, you must submit a copy of the revised survey instrument, a paragraph on the purpose of the instrument, the specific proposed constructs/scales to be measured, etc., your descriptive item analysis, and an analysis of the estimated reliability for each scale.
