概 要 ：
This session will describe questionnaire development based on a pilot study conducted by a group of Global Englishes researchers, including the presenter, to develop an attitude measure of the Global Englishes Orientation Questionnaire (GEO-Q) for investigating the attitude of English language learners towards English as a global language. In the study, a total of 204 learners, mostly in South Korea and Thailand, completed the preliminary version of the GEO-Q. Although the reliability and validity of the measure were confirmed, the measure did not capture detailed attitude dimensions, possibly due to the small sample size. The results of the study indicate that the preliminary version of the GEO-Q should be distributed to a larger sample. This session will include an overview of questionnaire surveys. Practical considerations involved in designing measures and the implications of instrument design choices for validity and reliability will be discussed.
