Activity 2C: Comparing Spanish and English HHIE-S Scores

Now have the students compare columns H and I. These are the totals from the two questionnaires given. Should the scores be the same? Why would you think that they should be the same? If they are not the same, give a reason/reasons why they might not be the same. They may respond with several different answers. Two main points should be addressed. These points are (1) either the test questions are not asking the same thing when translated from English to Spanish or (2) perhaps the participants did not understand the questionnaire in one of the languages. The next lesson will focus on analyzing this question: Was the questionnaire translated accurately?
