How to Investigate the Goal Orientations of Students in Competence-Based Pre-Vocational Secondary Education: Choosing the Right Instrument
Koopman, Maaike; Teune, Peter; Beijaard, Douwe
Evaluation and Research in Education, v21 n4 p318-334 2008
This study explores the psychometric properties of three instruments: a semi-structured interview, a questionnaire and a sorting task. The central question is which instrument is most suitable to investigate the goal orientations of students in competence-based pre-vocational secondary education. The questionnaire proved most accurate. The interview provided relevant supplementary information on the goals of the students and underlying motives. The sorting task appeared to be less suitable.
