Assignment: Needs Assessment Surveys
Imagine that you are creating a needs assessment for the professional issue or interest you identified in this weekâ€™s Discussion (I CHOOSE WELFARE FRAUD). Develop an operational definition for the construct you will need to measure (e.g., â€œjob satisfactionâ€). Then, construct a 10-item survey to measure this construct. Your survey questions should be measurable and based on one of the designs in the Learning Resources (i.e., Likert scale, indexes, etc.).
The Assignment (2â€“3 pages):
Submit your 10-item survey and a brief explanation of the survey design used to construct it. Be sure to include the operationalized definition of the construct you wish to measure. Briefly explain your rationale for including the items and describe how you would collect and analyze data from the survey. Finally, explain at least one challenge in constructing a survey of this nature. Be specific and provide examples.
