analogical dictionary




An interview is a conversation between two people (the interviewer and the interviewee) where questions are asked by the interviewer to obtain information from the interviewee.



  Interview as a method for qualitative research

"Definition" - The qualitative research interview seeks to describe and the meanings of central themes in the life world of the subjects. The main task in interviewing is to understand the meaning of what the interviewees say.(Kvale,1996)

  Aspects of qualitative research interviews

  • Interviews are completed by the interviewer based on what the interviewee says.
  • Interviews are a far more personal form of research than questionnaires.
  • In the personal interview, the interviewer works directly with the interviewee.
  • Unlike with mail surveys, the interviewer has the opportunity to probe or ask follow up questions.
  • Interviews are generally easier for the interviewee, especially if what is sought are opinions and/or impressions.
  • Interviews are time consuming and they are resource intensive.
  • The interviewer is considered a part of the measurement instrument and interviewer has to be well trained in how to respond to any contingency.

  Types of interviews

  • Informal, conversational interview - no predetermined questions are asked, in order to remain as open and adaptable as possible to the interviewee’s nature and priorities; during the interview the interviewer “goes with the flow”.
  • General interview guide approach - intended to ensure that the same general areas of information are collected from each interviewee; this provides more focus than the conversational approach, but still allows a degree of freedom and adaptability in getting the information from the interviewee
  • Standardized, open-ended interview - the same open-ended questions are asked to all interviewees; this approach facilitates faster interviews that can be more easily analyzed and compared.
  • Closed, fixed-response interview - all interviewees are asked the same questions and asked to choose answers from among the same set of alternatives. This format is useful for those not practiced in interviewing.



  Stages of interview investigation

  • Thematizing, the why and what of the investigation
  • Designing, plan the design of the study
  • Interviewing, conduct the interview based on a guide
  • Transcribing, prepare the interview material for analysis
  • Analyzing, decide on the purpose, the topic, the nature and methods of analysis that are appropriate
  • Verifying, ascertain the validity of the interview findings
  • Reporting, communicate findings of the study based on academic criteria

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
