PA 2 – Part I – CLO 3, CLO 4, CLO 5

  1. Build Your Own      Questionnaire! In your Week 3 Discussion 1, you explored and identified      factors that influence adjustment issues and their impact on academic      performance of university students. In this assignment, your task is to      create a survey instrument (consisting of no fewer than 20 items) to assess various      dimensions of student adjustment in the US. Before creating your survey      questionnaire, Review Chapters 14 and 15 of Zikmund et al. (9th ed.)      textbook and use the Library and Information Resources Network of  University (LIRN) to find resources (including dissertations and      theses) that address a similar topic. For example, (Stoklosa, 2015,      ProQuest Document ID: 1700219836) examines personal and environmental      characteristics of student adjustment. 

After conducting your research:

● Construct your own survey instrument. Note that you are not allowed to use existing survey instruments (completely or even partially) for this assignment. Existing instruments are mostly copyrighted materials and should not be used without proper permission from the author. 

After creating the instrument

● Write a paper of minimum three (3) pages, APA formatted, and provide a background on the process of creating the instrument, explain different dimensions and subscales of the instrument, discuss reliability and validity issues, and the explain scoring process (including reverse coding if needed). Present the instrument as an attachment to your document.
