Hoopdance has done so much for so many people, and I think that we need to start getting the word out! I am a hoopdancer/ performer/ instructor, but also a doctoral student in clinical psychology. I am doing a study on women's experience with exercise and really want a strong sample of hoopdancers to include!
If you are female, over the age of 18, and live in the US please help put hooping on the academic map by taking a moment to fill out my brief survey: https://survey.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_af3p3n9wf51BP48
Thanks so much for your support!
Im interesting in knowing why you didnt choose a 5 point scale. Do you expect that you will have enough statisticaly significant variance between responses with a 7 point scale? just wondering. Awsome that you are looking for data on this though! Cant wait to read about what your findings are.
I looked into doing 5 point scales. However, the authors of the selected scales did not authorize changes to them and responded to my question of modification that they believe that a wider breadth of response allows for more accurate measurement of experience rather than forcing more narrow options.
However, despite my tendency towards 5-point scales, I do believe that we will have enough variability for it to work, and that it will more accurately represent the correlations. :)
I took part in your survey. Also, I may have a journal post that may interest you as well. http://www.hoopcity.ca/profiles/blogs/my-healing-journey-within-the
I would love to see the results of your study. :)
I took your survey and wanted you to check out my story written by Tracy Circular Praise Bonney. Hooping literally saved my life. http://www.hoopcity.ca/profiles/blogs/what-happened-to-khaanee
I am still recovering and though I can only hoop with my mini's from my wheelchair, I am getting stronger each day.
