Empirical Measurement

PART I STEP 1: select an abstract concept (for example: traditionalism, religiosity, affiliation, social involvement, quality of life, status seeking,, etc. the concept should be sufficiently abstract so as to include several possible conceptual dimension (i.e. if chose “quality of life “, the general concept may include several dimension like health, job satisfaction, personal relationship, etc). NOTE in the final report, you should briefly discuss the concept you have chosen as well as its relevant dimension. STEP 2: once you have selected the abstract concept you will then be required to translate it into a set of measurable middle range (EMPIRICALLY MEASURABLE) concepts that will form the basis for questionnaire items. You should select FOUR concrete concepts each related to a different dimension of the abstract concept selected in step 1 STEP 3: develop a separate SINGLE INDICATOR quantitative measures for each of the four concretes you have identified. Keep in mind the notion of operationalization, distinctions between different types of numerical scales, and the principles of measurement design. NOTE: in the final report, discuss how you have chose to operationalize the research concepts as well as the potential limits of your measures in terms of reliability and validity. STEP 4: For ONE of the concrete concepts, put together a brief multiple-indicator measure (an index or scale) of that concept. NOTE: discuss the methodological choices in the final report STEP 5: arrange the measures into a brief questionnaire and include the questionnaire with the final report. PART II WRITE A 4 PAGES RESEARCH REPORT DESCRIBING THE MEASURES YOU HAVE DESIGNED AS WELL AS 1 PAGE SHORT SAMPLE QUESTIONNAIRE. The final report must be descriptive
