The advantage of doing so is that respondents provide more comparable answers. You will convert the following open questions into closed questions. Some open questions will require two closed questions—the first to determine if the characteristic or attitude exists, and the second to determine the quality of the characteristic or attitude. You should provide response sets (i.e., nominal, Likert-type, semantic differential) for the questions that are converted to the closed format. It may be ineffective to change some questions into a closed format. In such cases, you should explain why the open format is preferred. 1. How would you describe the type of university you attend? 2. How satisfying is your interaction with your employer? 3. When did you decide to attend college?
