Begin by choosing the topic- (NURSING TOPICS ONLY). You are looking for a method of capturing constructs using self-reports and structured instruments. Researchers will collect data using self-reports such as interviews or self-administered questionnaires. In this week's discussion, you will review quantitative research articles that involve using self-reports or instruments that measure a construct. Determine the operational definition of your construct variable and method for measurement. You will also have to include information on your sampling (inclusion or exclusion criteria). Be sure to include the level of measurement being used in the study. Remember a variable’s level of measurement determines what mathematic operations can be performed in a statistical analysis! Also include in your posting the tool’s reliability, internal consistency and equivalence if applicable. An article may or may not include additional information on the tool to include validity and sensitivity/specificity.
