I am supposed to be on a break from the online world – Plurk, Facebook, MSN and blogs. But I think I should blog about this.
I was doing the AACSB/EQUIS survey and was happily reading the instructions when I saw this –
Even though the point they are making is valid, I think the idea can be better phrased? Such that it is less misleading. Because this sentence is almost like telling the participants what/how to answer. I have a feeling that their answer might be skewed. Even if it’s not, it could be a potential weakness.
And then towards the end of the survey, I saw this –
Basically the error message says, “..Your numeric answer for question 11 must be more than 0..”. But but but…I’ve never lived(live?) in other countries for more than 6 months!! Gee! So I end up writing, “1; Singapore; 22 years”.
So yups. I think ever since attending HP102 and AB213, I have this thing against badly constructed survey 😦 Or maybe I am just more sensitive to misleading words and phrasing ba. Ohwells.
