    • 9. Written Questionnaire
      • Most complex and time-consuming to develop…
        • Must accurately reflect the attitudes and behaviors of target groups within multi-institutional parameters
        • Must be generalizable and scalable
        • Must be grounded in empirical study
        • Must be valid and reliable
      • As such, we are developing it in phases – with each phase informing the final instrument
