Step 3: When possible,
assure confidentiality to each participant, explaining the system
by which this is accomplished.
Confidentiality is likely to be important because you are going
to ask the interns to be frank about their experiences. However,
for data analysis, you still will need to match up this questionnaire
with their responses to future data collections. Hence you assign
each intern a unique ID, which you use to track responses. Once
the last questionnaire has been completed, names can be deleted.
All participant data thereafter will be coded and referred to in
terms of the IDs.
