DATA GATHERINGPRE-TEST - Two (2) sets - 1st set: all scales at the same time - 2nd set: one scale at a time - Introduction - Instructions - Answering of scales - Passing of papers - DebriefingACTUL TEST - We chose set 1: give all scales at the same time then follow the same procedure and flow.
REVISIONS IN THE PROCEDURE• Consent form • Change “mother’s status” to “Is your mother living or deceased?” • Follow-up question: If living, are you residing with your mother?• Debriefing Statement • Debriefing will not be discussed anymore as a group, we’ll just be giving them their own copies of the debriefing statement with contact information when they are finish answering the questionnaires.
REFLECTIONS • What facilitated your data gathering? • Accommodating and cooperative school heads, faculty and students • What hindered your data gathering? • Few female students per class • Some faculty were absent during the actual test • Students hurrying to go back to what they are doing
SOLUTION• Decided to have five (5) groups of participants instead of just two (2)• Waited for the teachers to be available• Have the debriefing statement printed and be given to the participants afterwards
INDIVIDUAL INSIGHTThe data gathering that we are doing right now made me more responsible and independent. Responsible in a way that I have to continuously communicate with the different school heads / deans for the schedule of the actual test that we’ll be conducting in their respective schools/colleges. I have also become somehow independent because there were instances that I have to go to the different schools by myself.Another lesson I’ve learned was that I have to manage my time and balance everything I have to do. I have also learned to become more patient and assertive when talking to the different school heads. I can’t always get what I want. I need to work hard for everything I am aiming for. - Mara Flores
• I learned that Patience is really a virtue. From going to different universities, meeting new people, set a schedule for the pre- test and actual test, and spending money for fares, food and other expenses like printing, it was a challenge for me to widen and lengthen my patience in that kind of situation. I experienced tiredness, exhaustion and it came to a point that I want to give up. But still, I look into a positive way. I know there is always someone who will inspire us to fulfill our goals and task on time. I believe that it’s not how fast we finish the thesis, but it’s how we make it be a good example for the future researcher (quality). - Jean Jocson

•Revisions• Shorter introduction• Debriefing: Hand out debriefing sheet with contact details after survey is submitted.• Change “Status of Parent” in Participant Consent Form • Replace it with: “Is your mother living [check box] or deceased [check box] • Add: If living are you presently living with your mother? Yes [check box], No [check box] • Add if no: How often do you interact with your mother? ____• Religiosity Scale • Remove repeated option – “More than once a week” • Replace it with a “Never” option
