Cognition and communication : judgmental biases, research methods, and the logic of conversation by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces social science researchers to the "logic of conversation" developed by Paul Grice, a philosopher of language, who proposed the cooperative principle and a set of maxims on which conversationalists implicitly rely. Norbert Schwarz applies this framework to a wide range of topics, including research on person perception, decision making, and the emergence of context effects in attitude measurement and public opinion research. Experimental studies reveal that the biases generally seen in such research are, in part, a function of violations of Gricean conversational norms. The author discusses implications for the design of experiments and questionnaires and addresses the socially contextualized nature of human judgment
Answering questions : methodology for determining cognitive and communicative processes in survey research( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social information processing and survey methodology by Hans-J Hippler( Book )

9 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Survey researchers have long been aware that the way in which questions are asked determines the obtained responses. However, the exact processes that mediate response effects remained elusive. In the present volume, cognitive psychologists and survey methodologists explore the cognitive processes that underlie respondents' answers to survey questions. The contributors provide an introduction to information processing theories for survey researchers, review current knowledge of response effects in the light of recent theorizing in cognitive psychology, and report a number of experimental studies on question context and question wording. In combination, the chapters provide a theoretical framework for the analysis of response effects in surveys and raise a number of applied and theoretical issues that have so far not been addressed in cognitive psychology

Context effects in social and psychological research by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

0 e The contributors to this book review our current knowledge of context effects in survey research, psychological testing, and social judgement. Drawing on recent developments in cognitive psychology, they offer theoretical accounts of the conditions that lead to the emergence of various context effects and report a number of new experimental studies. At stake now are clear, practical needs in the structuring of reliable tests, and a strong interest to develop a coherent theoretical framework to assess and scrutinize context effects, in addition to the desire to align some of the findings in survey research studies with the discoveries made in the information-processing field. This book attests to a fruitful dialogue between cognitive psychologists and survey researchers, as the cognitive processes initiated by question probes are really beginning to be understood and context effects classified and differentiated
Autobiographical memory and the validity of retrospective reports by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent revival of basic psychological research into autobiographical memory coincides with an increasing interest in cognitive aspects of the survey process in the survey research community. Presumably, the better we understand the cognitive processes used to answer retrospective questions, the better we shall be able to design questionnaires that facilitate respondents' performance. At the least, we should be able to get a better understanding of how well respondents are able to perform the tasks that are given them, and what tasks it is reasonable to expect a respondent to perform
Determining the value of non-marketed goods : economics, psychological, and policy relevant aspects of contingent valuation methods( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contingent valuation (CV) measures what is called passive use value or existence value. The CV method has been used to measure the benefits of environmental policy actions. CV measures of economic value rely on choice. In CV studies, choices are posed to people in surveys; analysts then use the responses to these choice questions to construct monetary measures of value. This volume is composed of three sections. The first section provides background into the issues underlying the public and academic discussion regarding CV and the reliability of CV estimates of economic value
