Interview protocol

Having a good interview protocol is essential in getting information for a great study but asking questions and getting answers is not always as easy as some people think (Fontana & Frey, 2000) that can be because of asking close-ended questions that don’t allow participants to fully express themselves. I will make use of the following set of questions in my study.
