Limitations of Self-Report Delinquency Surveys: A "Hands-On" Approach.
Bruce, Alan S.; Desmond, Scott A.
Teaching Sociology, v25 n4 p315-21 Oct 1997
Describes a technique for teaching undergraduates some of the problems associated with constructing self-report delinquency surveys. Argues that the exercise, requiring students to critique a flawed survey, increases students' interest in the problems and ultimately may lead to a better understanding of them. Outlines procedures, evaluation methods, and potential pitfalls. (DSK)
