Mini-Project: Developing Interview Questions and a Protocol
Mini-Project: Developing Interview Questions and a Protocol

This week marks the beginning of a four-week mini-project that will help you to practice your interviewing and coding skills. For this Discussion, you will increase your knowledge of interviewing by formulating a research question and developing interview questions and a protocol. You will then use these questions and protocol as the basis for the interviewing portion of the mini-project.

To prepare for this Discussion:
  •  
  • Review the mini-project description in the Application area for this week. The main task for this week is to interview 3 people from this class using this prompt: “Describe for me someone you admire, either a historical figure or someone alive today. Explain why you selected this person and why you admire this person.”
  • Review the readings and video segments for this week. In the video segments, pay attention to the questions being asked and the order in which they are presented. Consider how much useful data the questions generate.
  • Formulate a research question upon which to base the interviews.
  • Develop some interview questions and an interviewing protocol.
With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4, your research question, interview questions, and interview protocol for the mini-project. Justify the questions and their order, and explain what you hope to gain from this technique.

When appropriate, be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the reading(s) and/or video program(s) and use APA format.

Read a selection of your colleagues' postings.

Respond by Day 6 to at least two of your colleagues' postings by critiquing their research question, interview questions, and protocol in order to help them strengthen their interviews. In addition, you may also respond to your colleagues' postings in one or more of the following ways:
  •  
  • Ask a probing question.
  • Share an insight from having read your colleague's posting.
  • Offer and support an opinion.
  • Validate an idea with your own experience.
  • Make a suggestion.

Based on data presented in the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics locate, identify, define and describe an opinion survey on a topic of that has not been used previously by a colleague
Paper details

Write a 250 word essay response to the principle question. There must be a minimum of three separate and distinct paragraphs (introduction, discussion and conclusion). Beginning the introduction by restating the question is inappropriate. The introduction must contain a thesis statement. Grading will be based on structure, organization, grammar and spelling.
Respond to the principle question not later than and post comments to postings of two colleagues on two different days NLT is reserved for commenting to those who responded to your postings.
Once the response to the principle question has been completed it is then necessary to contribute a minimum of two comments to postings of colleagues. In connection with this aspect of participation, entering the discussion on a single day and making a post is inconsistent with the virtual classroom concept. In addition all comments to colleague's posting must be completed NLT . is reserved for comments to colleagues who have posted something to your responses.
Responses are not simply to agree or disagree, but must exhibit a position supported by specific data or information. It is expected that everyone will engage others in discussing the issues raised in the thread.
Responding to comments or postings of is not included in the quantity component of the grading scheme. Quality is subjectively evaluated and refers to the degree to which the posting addresses specific issues and comments of others in discussion. Again, simply entering the course and making a comment and leaving is inconsistent with the concept of virtual classroom which is based on discussion and debate.

EPA's approach to risk assessment for hazardous contaminants

EPA's approach to risk assessment for hazardous contaminants
Paper details

Directions: Read the scenario below and answer the questions.





Scenario: The environment continues to provide challenges to public safety professionals, yet the condition of the environment cannot be overlooked, especially when the long-term health of the planet depends upon purposeful and responsible action. For the purposes of this question, you are an independent evaluator hired by the U.S. Government to rate the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).



Question:
Describe ways in which the EPA's approach to risk assessment for hazardous contaminants are similar to, and different from, the assessment of such natural (atmospheric) threats as hurricanes or tornados. How might they be similar/different in the scope, emphasis, and focus taken in defining threat levels and potential outcomes; and how might they be similar/different in the metrics used (standards for measuring, quantifying, and scaling degree of danger or potential harm)?
