Questions related to Experience Sampling Method
Hey we are designing an ecological momentary assessment, where the questions are not triggered by time/activity, but the geolocation of the participant. We would like to predefine a few areas, and trigger questions once users enter a new area. I've only heard that MetricWire is promising and I am trying to schedule a meeting with them. I know there are a lot of new EMA apps out there and wonder if anyone knows another app that can serve our purpose? Thank you very much!
In regression estimator, if Y is study variable and X is an auxiliary variable. The assumption is that X is always stable throughout the process. Because X is always stable may not be correct in most real cases. Please suggest how in real scenario, X will be stable throughout the process?
We are investigating the impacts of affects (feelings) on team and individual performance in software engineering. Currently, we have ESM data about the participants affects over a three week period. We asked the users to provide answers two times each working day.
In the ESM dataset, we have the columns:
- participant number
- valence (affect dimension)
- arousal (affect dimension)
- dominance (affect dimension)
We also have many missing datapoints (all participants did not submit answers at least one time)
The team performance dataset is just a simple questionnaire with 9 questions about performance on a Likert-scale.
We want to see if there are any correlations between the affect dimensions and team performance. What are ways to do it?
Hi! I'm looking for the mobile app adapted to Experience Sampling Method (ESM), which is:
- compatible with Android system (especially with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, which is launched in Motorola Moto E 2nd gen smartphones);
- free of charge or as cheap as possible (friendly for PhD students ;-).
Thanks in advance for your help!
I am going to conduct an ESM study, in which I intend to ask participants how happy they feel at the moment several times per day during two or three weeks, and what they are doing, in order to link an activity to a mean level of happiness for instance. (not unlike what researchers are doing with DRM studies)
I want it to be as simple as possible for the participants, so my intention is to only ask one single question about their happiness at the moment (and a question about what they are doing). Searching through the litterature about happiness and subjective well being (SWB), I have found quite a lot of different measures, but most are complete surveys with multiple questions (which I want to avoid) or deal with overall life satisfaction ("overall, how happy are you with your life?").
So far, I haven't found a valid and reliable single question that would measure SWB. I am well aware that, since there are several dimensions to it, it is more rigorous to ask multiple questions, but once again, I really want it to be as simple as possible.
What question should I ask ? Something like : "How happy are you feeling right now?" ?
And the study will be conducted with French participants by the way, so if someone here knows of a french formulation that works well, that would be very helpful (as you can imagine, it is much harder to find established measures in French than in English).
I'm wanting to run a study examining the effectiveness of intervention components and wanting to check which method for data collection is possible/most appropriate. I've also been told that with the large amount of data collected with ESM interrupted time series analysis would be more appropriate than, for example, percentage of non-overlapping data, or percentage of data exceeding the median... Would really appreciate any advice! Thanks!
I am planning to sample for mesozooplankton and I need some advice on whether I should use a filtering or non-filtering cod end. One paper has mentioned that a non-filtering cod end reduces damage to the organisms, however a net fitted with a non-filtering cod end would also be harder to tow.
I haven't run a daily diary/experience sampling/"beeper" study since 2007 and back then we were using ESP on Palm Pilots. I'm sure things have changed and I've seen some trends in ethnographic apps for iPhone, etc. I'm curious how people are doing this now: what are the best in show apps, platforms (Android/iOS), time syncing strategies if running a study across platforms, cloud-based solutions for data dumps that folks are using. Any links, refs. to extant, recent reviews would be much appreciated. -Thanks
I listed events from which samples of a study were taken. I do not know the whole population. I participated in all of them during 6 months and I gave the questionnaire to all of the people who were of the target population of my study. Would you please let me know which kind of sampling this is? Because there was not randomization for selecting samples or events. I selected all of events and participants during this period of time. When I compare this to the definition of probable sampling methods, I cannot find a match for my study methods! Is this kind of sampling probable? The topic is related to conservation behaviour of a group of tourists.
We have this categorization: probable and non-probable sampling methods. The first includes simple random sampling, stratified, cluster and multiple stage sampling. The second one includes convenience sampling, and snowball. Which one is mine?
I am currently writing up the protocol for a diary study examining trait-behavioural consistency and its relationship with mood. I would like to present 15 items, 3 times a day for 2 weeks. Ideally, I would also like the items to be rotated at random from a slightly larger pool.
I am specifically looking at the best software to use to enable people to fill in the survey from their smartphones, either via email or the use of an app. Does anyone with experience in implementing similar designs have any suggestions?
