Repertory grid: A method to assist in the development of a factorial survey

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Decision making in all areas of social work practice is a challenging and complex process. This study specifically considered professional decision making by probation officers in Northern Ireland. The aim of the study was to explore probation officers’ judgements regarding the assessment of recidivism. Factors from repertory grids, together with issues identified through the literature, were incorporated into a factorial survey (Rossi and Nock, 1982). Ninety-three probation officers completed the survey and the results were analysed through regression analysis.
