Exercise 9.1 A Simple Change Grid Analysis

Using Table 9.1, answer the following questions:

(a) About which politician has the overall view changed the most?

(b) And the least?

(c) Why might this be?

Check your answers in Appendix 1.16.

Exercise 9.2 Handling a More Complex Change

Look again at Tables 9.2 and 9.3 and answer the following questions. The

answers are in Appendix 1.17.

(a) Compare the grids shown in Tables 9.2 and 9.3. Why have some of the

constructs from both grids been separated and put at the top?

(b) What are the three figures in each cell in the upper half of Table 9.3?

(c) About which staff member has the student changed his mind most?

(d) Give at least two bits of evidence for your answer to question (c) (hint:

look what’s happening with the constructs as well as the ratings: just

slot-rattling, or something else as well?).

(e) If you knew this student was about to start his final-year dissertation in the

same week as the second grid was elicited, and that his dissertation theme

was in the field of specialism of Prof. AW, Dr LT, and Dr TN, does any of

the three change models appear to be useful in understanding what’s

going on?

(f) Assuming the same circumstances as in question (e), how would you

characterise the main changes?

Scribble your answers down before proceeding

to Appendix 1.17.

Exercise 9.3 An Exchange Grid

Look again at Table 9.4 and examine the two different grids about lecturers.

Now turn to Table 9.5 and see what Ms B has made of Mr A’s constructs and

ratings. This is a self as other attempt; in other words, Ms B has filled in the

ratings on Mr A’s constructs as she thinks Mr A filled them out. Now work out

the difference between the two sets of ratings following the change grid

procedure (Section 9.1.1).

(a) Which lecturer has Ms B understood most similarly to Mr A?

(b) For which lecturer has Ms B least successfully understood Mr A’s views?

(c) Why might this be? If you were Ms B, what sort of hunches about the

reasons for difference would you want to discuss with Mr A?

Check your answers against Appendix 1.18.
