Fully structured interviews

In this type of interview the interviewer must adhere strictly to the questionnaire, and the questions are commonly precoded so that the respondent too is bound by the confines of the questionnaire structure. This would be the case in a questionnaire using mainly dichotomous and multiple-choice questions. There is very little need for the interviewer to intervene either in asking the questions, apart from reading out what is on the questionnaire, or in interpreting the questions, apart from ringing the appropriate codes. In this situation the least skilled type of interviewer may be used as there is very little the interviewer can do to interfere with the quality of data collected.
