Questionnaire module

Questionnaire module

Requirements

The essential points from the definition that need to be included in the question are:

  • that a qualification is completed
  • that it meets the minimum three months of full–time study or equivalent, for inclusion.
Qualification level

A requirement for the collection of the qualification level is that people identify the level of their qualification(s) or provide detailed information that leads to accurate coding of level. Separate questions are required for the secondary school and the post–school qualification questions. This enables separate output for secondary school qualifications and for post–school qualifications as both can be awarded to NZREG Levels 1–4.

Qualification subject

The questionnaire module needs to clearly indicate that a detailed subject of the post–school qualification is required. For example, a response of 'engineering' to the question is not detailed enough, as the field of engineering is sought, eg 'transport engineering'.

Highest qualification

No direct question is asked for 'highest qualification'. The highest qualification is derived from the responses to the secondary school and post–school questions.

Example

The questionnaire module below is an example that meets the requirements documented in this statistical standard. Other questionnaire modules may vary in format but should conform to the requirements contained in this statistical standard.
