Attitude Survey

Attending Online Universities While attending an online university, has anyone every asked what kind of experience you have had? Are you receiving a quality education like you would be if you were physically sitting in the classroom on campus? These very questions can be answered by answering an attitude survey which is a method that can allow for gathering facts, expectations, experiences and insights from a group of students whether the involvement was a constructive experience or was not.
Purpose of Survey
The drive of this survey is to create scores from advancing students on their level of fulfillment, awareness on partaking in online education and to obtain understanding from past experiences along with what to believe once they have pledge themselves to continuing their schooling in an online learning environment. This information will be gathered using a ranking scale survey. The audience of the test will be students that have attended an online university for over a year. The survey will acknowledge each student’s level of satisfaction and other factors by retrieving scores based on an attitude survey with multiple choice questions and comment section.
Preliminary Design Issues
The mode of administration for this test will be an emailed survey. One of the encounters for allocating and managing this survey is that the students attending an online campus are spread across the United States. More than likely, to send out an email with a link to the survey will be the most effective way of communication to ensure that all those get a chance to take the survey. The time that it requires to complete the survey will need to be short as to make sure that replies are honest. Included in the email will be a note to all that lets them know that the survey will only take 15 minutes maximum of their time and that the survey is in a…...

...The Norwegian Version of the Pediatric Nurses’ Knowledge and Attitudes Survey Regarding Pain: Reliability and Validity Kari Raaum Hovde, Tone Høilo Granheim, Knut-Andreas Christophersen, Alfhild Dihle P ain in children is still both under-estimated and under-treated (Bell et al., 2009; Liossi, 2006; Stinson, Yamada, Dickson, Lamba, & Stevens, 2008; Zempsky, Cravero, & the Committee on Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Section of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, 2004). Inadequate treatment of pain in children may cause many negative psychological and physiological consequences, such as fear and anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, increased risk of infections, and delayed wound healing. In addition, poor pain control may result in increased length of stay in the hospital, contribute to the development of chronic pain, and even lead to death (American Academy of Pediatrics [AAP] & American Pain Society [APS], 2001; Liossi, 2006; Schechter, Berde, & Yaster, 2003; Vincent, 2005; Zempsky et al., 2004). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability and validity of the Norwegian version of the Pediatric Nurses’ Knowledge and Attitudes Survey Regarding Pain (PNKAS-N) in nurses who work with children in pain. The PNKAS was translated into Norwegian in accordance with international guidelines and pilot tested with 10 nurses.

The evaluation can be positive or negative and can be uncertain at times. Researcher who took a more behavioural stance define attitude as predisposition to respond consistently in a positive or negative way to some person, object, or situation.

The source of information or the manner in which data are accumulating could well make a big difference in the severity and effectiveness of this attitude survey about psychological tests and measurements class” (Hogan, 2007, p. 422). The final step of this attitude survey is the specific instructions for administering, scoring, and interpreting the attitude survey. Attitude survey must consist of short or brief questions and do not include embarrassing or personal questions. He or she made sure the survey consist of one and half page. Students do not like long surveys. “A well-designed student’s attitude survey will tell administrator what students think about his or her class and the online environment” (Likert, 1932, p. 140). Something that seems insignificant, like some members of the learning teams not participating or the some member’s waiting until the last minute can cause dissatisfaction that affects productivity and morale of the group. A comprehensive, confidential attitude survey gives students a safe place to voice their concerns and gives administers a wealth of knowledge to create a better guidelines.

...ATTITUDE OF MALE EMPLOYEES TOWARD FEMALE MANAGERS IN SELECTED ORGANIZATIONS IN GHANA Alexander Preko PhD/CE, Business Studies Department Wisconsin International University College, Ghana, Legon Ghana ABSTRACT The study examines the views of male employees working under female heads in selected organizations in Ghana. The research is significant because it testifies how male negatively regard female heads despite series of both international and national conferences and platforms that advocate for women to assume managerial positions at the workplace. The study employed a case study and descriptive research design. The sample size was 122 respondents from 17 organizations. A purposive random technique was used to select only male employees who have worked or are still working under female heads. Questionnaires and secondary data were used to collect data. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to analyze data which were presented into simple descriptive tables. The study revealed that majority of the male employees (69.5%) preferred to work under male managers and coded managerial positions as masculine position. It is recommended, therefore, that male employees should embrace and integrate female heads in decision making positions, as women now constitute majority of the working population in the world.

Develop an attitude survey using the selected issue, that will be administered, I will discuss the preliminary design issues experienced in creating the survey. I will give specific instructions for administering, scoring, and interpreting the survey. The topic for this survey will be Nursing home Care. The focus will be on the people that have the most direct experience with the clientele. Nurses and aids will be the main focus of the survey. The issues that are experienced when deciding on this type of survey is anyone that has work in this field for any length of time are either very passionate about their job or they strongly dislike it usually there is no middle ground. The care of the clientele has changed over the years, it has become more focused on patient care. By this it is meant that the staff has to be geared more to the patient’s wishes as oppose to what is in the best interest of the patient. In today’s nursing home environment the resident is able to have an input on their direct care if they are cognitive enough to make decisions for themselves. If at any time they want to refuse treatment then even if it is a life or death situation the staff has to respect their wishes (Deborah Armstrong, 2002). Here are three examples of what is a small part of the residents rights and on a personal...

...head: Attitude Survey Attitude Survey Michelle Anderson University of Phoenix PSY475 March 12, 2012 Abstract The purpose of this survey is to ascertain the general beliefs of a mixed populous on the subject of unemployment. The survey is scored in Likert Method, each item gives a small amount of information about the subject’s attitude. These small amounts add up to a whole attitude toward the object. Attitude Survey The subject of unemployment has become one of great debate over the last decade. There are many people out of work (Bureau of Labor Statistics), and more businesses closing their doors, permanently, every day. The purpose of this survey is to query the general public about their opinions on unemployment. The survey covers such questions as; is unemployment as bad as the media would have us believe, and is unemployment rates rising or falling. The most popular scale for attitude survey is the Lickert method (Hogan, 2007 p. 574). The Lickert method is the scale found on the customer survey cards at local fast food restaurants such as Hardees and at some specialty stores like Krispy Kreme. To get a general view of subjects’ attitude toward the over- all object the method uses a “large number of item stems expressing some aspect” (Hogan, 2007, p. 574) of the whole object. The scale is a five point system using completely agree, agree, neither agree nor disagree, disagree and completely disagree. The first step in generating the unemployment survey is to......

Objects include concepts, practice, group, institutions or an individual (p. 573). Attitudes consist of three components: cognitive, emotional and behavioral. I designed an attitude survey using the SERVQUAL approach to assess the attitudes of my coworkers at Ralcorp Frozen Bakery Products (RFBP). The purpose of the survey is to gain an understanding of the attitudes and perceptions that RFBP employees have toward the company. The purpose of the paper is to discuss the design, administration, scoring, and interpretation of the survey as well as any issues I experienced while creating the survey. Design According to Fink and Kosecoff (1998), surveys are a collection of data used to obtain information from individuals. The design of the survey was based on the SERVQUAL approach. The survey was designed for two purposes: employees to express his or her concerns toward Ralcorp and measure his or her expectations of the company while employed. The audience for this survey was employees who have been with the company for less than a year and for employees who have been with the company more than five years, to see if any improvements have been made. The survey will be administered two weeks after he or she comes off probation through a written format. This survey consisted of 11 items and took each......
