Cognitive Interviewing Firstly, pair up and sit back to back. Decide on who will be the talker/thinker and who will be the listener/writer. Chose one of the following three problems shown on the next two slides (the first three are primary school maths, the fourth a more open problem) a) the talker/thinker must describe the question in their own words to the listener/writer, who must write it down b) the talker/thinker must then attempt to solve the problem, describing and analysing each process s/he goes through. The listener/writer must again write it down. c) Turn to face each other and consider the process and information you have just collected.

A travel agent wants to open a new travel agency. She currently has
5 shops but wishes to expand the business. The problem is where to site the new shop. The new shop should focus on the mass-market package holiday business- the annual two-week holiday rather than business travel. Which town in England would be a good site and within that town, which site- shopping centre, high street, suburb, airport?
