TCFL Questionnaire – Limitations of Scope/对外汉语问卷的限定

The main limitations to my original questionnaire are: – The Chinese translation is not accurate, causes confusion, and therefore does not always elicit an accurate response from the reader – The questions are open-ended, which only allows for qualitative analysis, and not quantitative analysis 我问卷的局限: -我自己把英文翻译成中文。这样我的问题不太清楚。汉语老师可能不明白我的意思。结果汉语老师的回答也不太清楚。 -问卷的回答是定性分析的, 不是定量分析的
