The Q-sort Method: Assessing Reliability (...)
Abstract(WP08/02 Clave pdf) There is a growing interest in empirical research in operations management. The Q-sort method, which is a method of assessing reliability and construct validity of questionnaire items at a pre-testing stage, is described.

Two examples are provided on how the method was actually applied in large-scale survey research.
