  6. 6. Common Errors In Research Questionnaire Studies  Using a questionnaire to work with problems that lend themselves better to other research techniques.  Not giving enough care to the development of the questionnaire and not pretesting it.  Asking too many questions, thus making unreasonable demands on the respondents time.  Overlooking details of format, grammar, printing, and so on that can influence respondents. first impression. Interview Studies  Not adequately planning the interview or developing the interview guide.  Not conducting sufficient practice interviews to acquire needed skills.  Failing to establish safeguards against interviewer bias.
  7. 7. Experimental Studies  Inadvertently or otherwise treating the experimental and control groups differently, thus leading to biased findings.  Using too few cases, leading to large sampling errors and insignificant results.  Failing to divide the main groups into subgroups in situations where subgroup analysis may produce worthwhile knowledge. Observational Studies  Not sufficiently training observers and thus obtaining unreliable data.  Using an observation procedure that demands too much of the observer.  Failing to safeguard against the observer’s disturbing or changing the situation being observed Relationship (Correlation) Studies  Assuming that a correlation between pieces of data is proof of a cause-and effect relationship.  Using a sample in correlational research that differs on so many variables that comparisons of groups are not interpretable.  Selecting variables for correlation that have been found unproductive in previous studies.
