I am confused about the alpha. I saw an alpha symbol when I was reading a reference material about p-value, but I remember there is something called Cronbach’s alpha. I am not sure what is the difference between these alphas?

The threshold (e.g., .05), the largest P-value tolerated for rejecting a true null hypothesis, is called the significance level, α; whereas Cronbach’s alpha is a measure of internal consistency, that is, how closely related a set of items are as a group. Technically speaking, Cronbach’s alpha is not a statistical test – it is a coefficient of reliability (or consistency).

By the way, I found that if using quantitative methods, I could hardly hear how the older adults themselves interpreter their experiences about sexual needs or other related services. Shall I add in-depth interviews in data collection?

The sexual needs of older people are a very sensitive topic in Hong Kong society. I am thinking of using an online questionnaire for a survey. What do you think? Do you agree it may help?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
