Don’t code repeats.

X = unusual answer.

Coding 3 COMPETENCIES

3.1.1

1 = yes

2 = no

3 = no answer

3.1.2

1 = yes

2 = no

3 = no answer

  1. 3.2 - Knowledge of competencies

    • Read competencies

    • Only include competencies on college list

    • If there is ambiguity, read 2.3 answers. This may help the rating if competency is understood

    • Ratings

      1. 1. Did they list competencies from the school list = number

      2. 2. Did they understand competencies from school list?

      3. 3. I would put in codes for competencies understood. Competencies with X are not understood–Numbers should match #2.

  2. 3.3 Most important/Least important

    1. 1. I would assign each competency a number. Note these differ by college.

    2. 2. For most important and least important, I would enter the codes (competencies).

    3. 3. For the ratings, I would first enter code for competency and then two spaces for first came and now. (p.225)
