Public Opinion Peer Review Questionnaire

Public Opinion Peer Review Questionnaire

Please provide your peer with detailed responses to the following questions. Your grade on the peer review will depend on the extensiveness of your comments provided here and on your peer’s paper (in-text comments). DO NOT SIMPLY PRAISE YOUR PEER. Every paper has weaknesses, and it’s important for you to point out your peer’s weaknesses. If you can’t find weaknesses, then you’re not reviewing the paper carefully enough.

Please be sure to submit both this file and the annotated copy of your peer’s paper to the following folders in Canvas: 1) “Project Draft” (click on the link to your peer and upload both files there, and 2) “Project Peer Review.”

If you don’t know the answer to any of the questions below, then be sure to tell the writer that the information was missing or was unclear.

Introduction

The introduction should accomplish the following:

  • Introduce what attitudes the project investigates and the comparison used
  • Explain why the comparison is useful and what we can learn from it
  • Briefly summarize results from the data analysis and offers a brief possible explanation for the results.

 

  • What is the comparison that the writer uses and why is this a useful comparison?

 

 

 

  • What does the writer find and what explanation does s/he posit?

 

 

 

  • Comment on the Introduction’s overall organization and writing style. Was it easy for you to read and understand? What are some writing strengths and weaknesses in the Introduction?

 

 

Methodology

The methodology section should accomplish the following:

  • Briefly describe the World Values Survey
  • Offer full question wording and response wording for the 2-3 survey items used
  • Describe how the questions used relate to one common theme
  • Indicate how many people responded to each question used in the analysis.

 

 

 

  • Based on the writer’s description, what do you know about the World Values Survey?

 

 

  • Does the writer provide the full question and response wording for the 2-3 survey questions used? Or, did the writer simply provide the brief description or paraphrased version of the questions?

 

  • What common theme do both questions tap? Is there one common theme, or do the questions seem to be about different issues?

 

  • Does the writer indicate the number of respondents answering each question?

 

  • Comment on the Methodology section’s overall organization and writing style. Was it easy for you to read and understand? What are some writing strengths and weaknesses in the Methodology section?

 

Graphs

  • Is it clear what the graphs are showing (eg, there’s a note/ legend showing what people are responding to)?

 

 

  • Do the graphs consolidate data so that not all of the response options (eg, “very important, fairly important, not very important, not at all important”) are shown? Does your peer show too much data?

 

 

  • Do the graphs show redundant data (eg, both the agrees and disagrees are shown, but these are effectively inverse of each other)?

 

 

  • Is there a clear contrast across time or countries in each graph? It’s important that each graph shows the countries/ time periods side-by-side. There should not be a separate graph for each country/ time period.

 

 

  • Are there data labels above the graphs?

 

 

  • Is the capitalization appropriate in the chart titles and axes?

 

 

  • Is there a clearer and more succinct way of wording the title?

 

 

  • Are there different colors to show the contrast either across time or across countries?

 

 

  • Do you have any other suggestions for how to improve the graphs?

 

Description of Findings:

The Description of Findings section should:

  • Describe how people have responded to each survey question,
  • Describe similarities and/or differences in attitudes across countries or over time,
  • Relate responses to the 2-3 survey questions used to the broader issue area that students are investigating.
  • Clearly refer to the graphs in describing people’s attitudes

 

  • How did citizens respond to the first survey question? In the description of people’s responses, does the writer clearly refer to a graph?

 

  • How did they respond to the second question? In the description of people’s responses, does the writer clearly refer to a graph?

 

 

  • How did they respond to the third question? In the description of people’s responses, does the writer clearly refer to a graph? (The writer may not have analyzed three questions. In that case, skip this question)

 

  • Were attitudes over time or across countries similar or different?

 

  • What do the findings about the 2-3 survey questions indicate about citizens’ attitudes toward the broad theme that both questions relate to?

 

  • Comment on this section’s overall organization and writing style. Was it easy for you to read and understand? What are some writing strengths and weaknesses in the section?

Possible Explanation

This section should draw on at least three different scholarly sources in offering one possible explanation for the results described in the previous section.

  • Why does the writer observe the similarity/ difference described in the previous section? What explains the similarity observed across countries or over time? Keep in mind the writer should emphasize only ONE factor.

 

 

 

  • Is the explanation compelling? Are you convinced that the factor identified could explain the similarity/ difference observed? Why? How did the writer convince you?

 

 

 

  • Does the writer cite at least three scholarly sources in offering a possible explanation?

 

 

 

  • Comment on this section’s overall organization and writing style. Was it easy for you to read and understand? What are some writing strengths and weaknesses in the section?

 

Conclusion

This section should clearly and coherently summarize main findings and the possible explanation offered for them.

  • Based on just the Conclusion, what are the paper’s main findings?

 

 

 

  • How does the writer explain the main findings?

 

 

  • Comment on this section’s overall organization and writing style. Was it easy for you to read and understand? What are some writing strengths and weaknesses in the section?

 

 

Overall Project Design

Do you notice any of the following issues?

 

  • Questions do not adequately tap citizens’ attitudes toward one common issue area (eg, the questions are not related enough)

 

  • Data are inaccurately reported or fabricated. Fabrication includes reporting data that do not exist (eg, reporting responses for a question on Wave 3 when the question was not asked during Wave 3)

 

  • Student does not investigate identical questions asked across countries or over time (eg, the questions used for Wave 3 are different from those used for Wave 5)

 

  • Student investigates attitudes in 2+ countries over time

 

  • Student collects data on fewer than 2 or more than 3 survey questions

 

  • Student doesn’t make an adequate comparison (the comparison should be across two former communist Eastern European countries or two survey waves):

 

  • Sources cited are fabricated or inappropriately summarized

 

  • Graphs are copied and pasted from the World Values Survey website
