Application 2: Small-Scale Qualitative Research Project—The Interview Guide
Qualitative research questions are open-ended, and typically restate the purpose of a study in specific terms. These questions should start with “what” or “how” instead of “why”. While you are developing your Central qualitative research question, you might begin by considering what type of questions to ask. Keep in mind that your research question for this assignment should be one that can be answered, at least in part, by this interview. Questions that provoke a yes/no response are not permitted in a doctoral study interview guide.
