Examples now posted in the workshop section. A bad interview about the concept of information from my fieldwork in Uganda. A good interview and a couple of bad interviews with commentary from the book Learning From Strangers, by Robert S. Weiss.
The assignment sheet for assignment #2 was handed out in class on Tuesday (10/11)
In addition to the assigned Suchman and Jordan article on ‘interactional troubles in face-to-face survey interviews’ I’ve uploaded comments that were published along with this piece in the Journal of the American Statistical Association. Some of these comments explain and defend survey research against the validity concerns posed by Suchman and Jordan and add some further insight into how qualitative and quantitative researchers think in different ways about the methods they use.
Photos of our final analysis from our workshop exercise are now posted in the workshop section. Additionally I went ahead and mocked up an outline for the report we might write that organizes our findings.
