Is there a difference between an interview and a conversation? What are the instruments that are used to conduct an interview? What are the types and structure of an interview? Are there skills that an interviewer needs to possess? These and much more will be answered in this lesson.
Interview is the second method of data collection that we are discussing. So far we have discussed Administration of Questionnaires as the first method (not that this is not in any order) and the instruments used in this method as questionnaires and interview schedule.
Under interviews, we are going to learn the types of interviews, the instruments used to conduct an interview, structure of an interview and skills that an interviewer needs to possess.
