MRA and QRCA identified a strong need for qualitative research documentation. This 116 page Handbook published in 2001 provides valuable information for buyers and users of qualitative research, as well as recruiters and facility managers. It was developed as a reference resource and as a training tool for those with less qualitative research experience. It addresses such issues as hiring/training recruiters, determining desirable respondents, understanding the screener script, ensuring quality control, providing the right AV equipment and designing the best facility layout. An extensive Appendix with sample forms provides a wealth of support information.
