17 Feb Tsatsu leads Akoto Ampaw,Amenevor in good comm skills in a public survey but trails in being analytical
By Staff reporters
The ongoing election petition in Ghana has created legal arguments and debates by Ghanaians who are seemingly soaked in the proceedings at the apex court of the West African country .
The Ghanaian public are sharing opinions ,reviews and ideas about how the three lead lawyers for the petitioners ,the 1st and the 2nd respondent speak and presents their case before the justices of the supreme court .
Dateline Africa commissioned a survey among Ghanaians, our team weighed up several factors, including which among the three lawyers is ballsy, pragmatic, maintains good communication skills, analytical and a strategist.
Dateline conducted face to face, over the telephone methods .We restricted ourselves mainly to issues of good communication skills, analytical, research skills, people skills, perseverance and creativity.
With any methodology in survey is worth remembering that sample size is a guarantee that something is representative.
Tens of thousands may respond to a text vote or a questionnaire – but it will still not be robust. Unrepresentative methods of seeking opinion do not become representative because a high number respond – there is no “threshold” to legitimize them.
Focus Groups and Panels
The team wanted to create flavor and spontaneity, so we involved people with different backgrounds including teachers, social media commentators and influencers, political scientists and legal experts
Our Scoring methods
The Scoring feature we used allowed Qualtrics to create tests, measure respondents’ skills, and assess people in a myriad of ways. But when it comes to assessments, we want to communicate different things to people based on how they performed
