I think that the prompt is fine the way it is. I like the order in which the questions would be asked. The questions help us get our point and views across and hopefully will get us the responses and help that we are looking for.
Thanks for these comments, Benny. You are always the first to respond with something interesting.
I think that this is reasonably well formatted. I agree with Benny that the order of the questions is very important. We may want to consider making some of the questions multiple choice, or on a Likert scale, so that it is easier to interpret the data. For example, on the question asking how much communication there is, they could rate it between 0 (none) and 10 (consistent, daily, available at all times).
Thanks for these comments. There is a chance we might circulate these questions to some of the leaders as a survey, if they can't make the meeting. If we do your suggestions would make these questions work in that format. For now as focus group prompts, they can be a bit open ended.
I like our question and believe it's the right one to be asking. I also believe that the formatting is crucial, and that this is formatted quite well. The survey questions being asked defiantly cover all our bases. I agree with Stanley about the Likert scale and a number rating system for certain questions.
Thanks for this Esvin. I just wrote to Stanley explaining that there is a chance we might circulate these questions to some of the leaders as a survey, if they can't make the meeting. If we do your suggestions would make these questions work in that format. For now as focus group prompts, they can be a bit open ended.
It's a little wordy. I would recommend editing. For example, instead of "What is the impact" to begin the follow-up to the first question, I think it should start "How does that impact..." This makes the question more open ended, and it flows off the tongue with greater ease.
I agree they are wordy, I would be more worried if these were survey questions or even formal interview questions. But given they are focus group prompts and will not be read but" talked" by someone familiar with them, I think they will be okay. What do you think?
