WYSAC Report

Cognitive Interviews for the Wyoming Department of Employment: Testing a Job Skills Questionnaire

wysac1014
Wyoming Survey and Analysis Center
Technical Report No. SRC-1014

The Wyoming Department of Employment (WDOE), Research & Planning Section, enlisted the Wyoming Survey & Analysis Center (WYSAC) to conduct 10 cognitive interviews at various locations throughout the state of Wyoming. The goal of these interviews was to test how well the questions included in the Job Skills survey perform in achieving the intended purpose of this instrument, which is to be used by the WDOE in the future; namely, to effectively yield the information necessary to help educators and employment training organizations identify necessary skills and develop curriculum to forge these skills in the labor pool.


Revisions

New Hires Revisions, 2012Q1

Several changes were made to the new hires survey instrument before it was mailed out for the first quarter 2012 (2012Q1) panel. The revised questionnaire was mailed to a small percentage of the 2012Q1 sample in order to ensure that the changes did not create respondent confusion. These changes do not change the overall integrity of the questionnaire, but should help clarify the intent of the question to the employer filling it out. To find out more about the changes that were made, click here.
