Why are they important? 2. Try to make a first questionnaire to study this topic. 3. Go through the different steps of the survey design mentioned in this chapter and make your choices for the research on which you have chosen to work. part I The Three-Step Procedure to Design Requests for Answers In this part, we explain a three-step procedure for the design of questions or as we call it requests for answers. We distinguish between concepts-by-intuition, for which obvious questions can be formulated, and concepts-by-postulation, which are formulated on the basis of concepts-by-intuition.

Such an operationalization assumes that people can express their job satisfaction in the answer to such a simple question. However, we must accept that errors will be made in the process, whether due to mistakes in respondents’ answers or in ­interviewers’ recordings of them. 2, we present this process through a path model. 2 A measurement model for a direct measure of job satisfaction. of some errors. The variable of interest is job satisfaction. This latent or unobserved variable is presented in the circle.
