Computer-assisted, self-interviewing (CASI) compared to face-to-face interviewing (FTFI) with open-ended, non-sensitive questions
This article reports results from research on cultural models, and assesses the effects of computers on data quality by comparing open-ended questions asked in two formats—face-to-face interviewing (FTFI) and computer-assisted, self-interviewing (CASI). We expected that for our non-sensitive topic, FTFI would generate fuller and richer accounts because the interviewer could facilitate the interview process. Although the interviewer indeed facilitated these interviews, which resulted in more words in less time, the number of underlying themes found within the texts for each interview mode was the same, thus resulting in the same models of national culture and innovation being built for each mode. Our results, although based on an imperfect research design, suggest that CASI can be beneficial when using open-ended questions because CASI is easy to administer, capable of reaching more efficiently a large sample, and able to avoid the need to transcribe the recorded responses....

Robust semi-quantitative fuzzy cognitive map model for complex systems and case study: mitigating the water scarcity problem in Joran Obiedat, Mamoon (Lincoln University, 2013)Many contemporary real life problems are characterised by uncertainty due to human-environment interactions. Such problems are typically qualitative, participatory, complex and dynamic such that the domain knowledge ...
