I designed a questionnaire for surveying community satisfaction. But many participants have chosen “don’t know” in answers. Some even have ticked “don’t know” answers for most of the questions. How could that be?

Great that you ask this question. “Don’t know” answers do not always imply the participants “don’t know.” Too complicated questions or too long explanations will both reduce the participants' intention to think carefully about their situations, thus choosing “don’t know.”

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

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?
