질문순서가 치매노인과 노인에 대한 태도 측정에 미치는 효과
김정희, 홍귀령, 정혜선
This study was done to examine effects of question order on the measurement of attitude toward elders with dementia and to elders.
Structured questionnaires were administered to four groups of nursing students (n=335). Each group was assigned one type of questionnaire. Data were collected twice with a 2-week interval. At time 1, there were two types of questionnaires including attitude items toward elders with dementia and items toward elders. At time 2 the same two types of questionnaires were used but the item order was reversed; attitudes toward elders and towards elders with dementia. Data were analyzed using paired t-test.
There was no difference in responses when the attitudinal items toward elders with dementia were placed before those toward elders. No attitudinal difference was found toward elders with dementia when the questions came after attitudinal questions toward elders. Partial support was observed in obtaining responses in a positive direction toward elders when the questions came after the attitudinal questions about elders with dementia.
Attitudinal responses seem to depend on the question order. Strategies need to be adopted to avoid the influence of question order in measuring attitudes toward different groups of elders.
