Data collection ended, data analysis underway

Greetings! I did not realize that I failed to update this blog when data collection wrapped up at the end of January. I am grateful to all who took the time to participate, and especially grateful for those who have supported me in pursuing this area of study.

Next up is data analysis. I already completed the first part of the analysis, which is a factor analysis of the new scale and some other validity tests such as cronbach's alpha. Next, I'll run some regression analyses to see what variables help me understand the differences among scores on the new scale.

The good news is that my dissertation defense is scheduled for the end of April. So, there is an end in sight! But the other good news is that this end is only the beginning of my research career. I have many new questions that I want to pursue, and I am excited about what the future holds!

Encourage your coworkers to participate as well. Thank you!

Last gift card drawing before the holidays

This is the last week for participants to enter the $50 gift card drawing for my survey before the holidays, so get on over there and complete the survey if you haven't already! If you've already completed it, you remain in the drawing until your name is drawn.

Need a flyer to post at your agency, hand out to staff, or put in staff mailboxes? Here's one you can download and print:

Thank you to all who have helped me get the word out about the survey, and thank you to all who have participated! 

Weeks 3 & 4 gift card drawings are done!

Well, I've fallen behind a little on posting updates, but I just wanted to put it out there that Weeks 3 and 4 gift card winners have been notified. Congratulations!
