Research Project Abstract

This study comprises two complementary efforts to produce a high-quality survey instrument to investigate the factors that influence students while selecting their study abroad destination. The first phase of this study will use a cognitive interviewing technique. Respondents from the target population will voice aloud the thoughts they have while they complete the survey, and respond to follow-up questions to gauge reaction to the survey and recommendations for improving it. The second phase of the study will involve a pilot testing of a revised survey. The participants will be invited to complete a paper version of the survey voluntarily. Item responses will be analyzed to further guide revision of the survey. By completing this study, the research team will produce a tool for collecting high-quality data to inform our understandings of undergraduate students and programming designed to help them decide on and have a remarkable study abroad experience.
