Measure a Concept
Students pick a topic related to Communication Studies (or another social science discipline) and then define the topic operationally by finding a way to measure it. They test out their instrument on a partner.
Additional Instructor Resources (e.g. in-class activities, worksheets, scaffolding applications, supplemental modules, further readings, etc.):
- To prepare the student to assess the appropriateness of various research methods in response to questions asked by communication researchers
- To build general knowledge of both quantitative and qualitative research methods and objectives
