|Other Titles:||An Analysis of the Reliability and Validity of the Close-ended Questionnaire of the Occupational Survey in the Educational Research|
Department od Education, NTNU
The “New Occupational Classification of Survey of Social Change” and the “New Occupational Socioeconomic Scale” for Taiwan, based on the former, strive to provide precise measurements. Therefore they contain may occupational classifications, and the coder classifies the occupations based on the respondents’ answers on an open-ended questionnaire. However, many surveys designed for Taiwan students use large samples; if they survey the occupations of students’ parents based on the open-ended questionnaire, the costs would be very high. Therefore, the surveys are now in the form of a close-ended questionnaire: on it the respondents choose the appropriate ones from the occupational classifications. Here, the author set out to investigate whether the close-ended questionnaire is appropriate. The large sample of the study was made up of respondents from two groups of students, and the author simultaneously used close-ended and open-ended questionnaires on which the author asked about the occupations of the students’ fathers. Moreover, the author compared the seminaries and differences between the results from using the two kinds of questionnaires. The author also assessed the reliability and validity of the close-ended questionnaire. The results are as follows: close-ended questionnaires have good test-retest reliability, and compared with the refined “New Occupational Socioeconomic Scale” for Taiwan, the construct validity is slightly lower.
