MetadataShow full item record
The interview about an interview is discussed as one of the ways of verifying respondents’ answers. Such interviews were used in the methodological investigations conducted in Włocławek in 1973. The above mentioned interviews were based on the standardized list of the desired information, and were conducted by student interviewers, subjected to intensive and long training. By means of those interviews, information about processes leading to the answers to 7 questions of the basic questionnaire was collected. The list of information elements was constructed on the basis of a detailed model of inner reactions of a respondent. Evaluation of the quality of answers obtained was done, using as a criterion, the types of psychological processes that were appearing in the course of interviewing in respondents. Analysis of the application of this method has shown its efficiency: by means of this method it was possible to evaluate the quality of 80% of all the answers. Lacunae of information may be ascribed most often, to the interviewers who were not always skillful enough in interviewing about an interview. Limitations of this method are as follows: 1° in spite of the measures undertaken to secure the standardization of coding procedure, it was not possible to avoid certain number of arbitrary coding decisions; 2° the basis of evaluation was the information about psychological experience of respondents, given by themselves only, and therefore burdened with all the shortcomings of the introspection. Improvement of an interview about an interview is proposed aiming at the elimination of some of its shortcomings.
