Method Questionnaire (IMMIGRATION)
Description Data concerning students’ cognitive competence was gathered by a questionnaire. Students from six countries, both within the ‘Open Europe’ course and the control groups, were involved. 

"The questionnaire was planned and designed in collaboration with all the project partners. The Manchester Team finalised the English questionnaire that formed a common basis for the country-specific questionnaires. In principal, the questionnaire was the same in all countries but, due the differences in political and socio-cultural contexts, there were variations in relation to the country specific questions. The U.K. specific parts in the questionnaire were replaced by country specific terms and questions on the basis of the outcomes of the settlement policy analyses. The process of developing the content for the questionnaires was accompanied with a detailed discussion and feedback ... by the local researchers, local coordinators and main coordinator. Every partner had the final questionnaire as a native language version, but it was also translated into English and presented ... for the other partners to see." (Pitkänen, 2000, p. 30)
