Hi All -
I'm going to have to call in today rather than join in Corvallis. Hopefully Bob and I can coordinate so we are both on the same line.
Attached are the latest draft survey, and four contact letters/postcards. The survey is getting pretty close. We've been through the survey with a fine-toothed comb and have looked back at some literature and made what I would consider the last big revision. The biggest change was deleting the NEP question. We also have the choice experiment integreated into the survey, and changed some of the early question scales and wording for better consistency with what’s out there in the literature.
I think it is pretty well focused now on what respondents believe about the qualities of the watershed, the activities respondents would support, their willingness to pay, and how their sense of place may influence their reported behavioral intentions re: programs to protect and support watershed programs. It also now fits within 12 pages in a word document. Hopefull we'll get the survey layout done in InDesign so we can get more design consistency in the next week.
The contact postcards and letters should give you a sense of the contact protocol for those who are interested. These are drafts, so please feel free to make suggestions.
Last, we are also tackling the IRB revision and should have the revised protocol prepared soon.
