QuestionnairesIn pairs, work through the first few stages of designing a survey – choose a topic, formulate a hypothesis and then design ten questions to test that hypothesis. Use mainly closed-ended questions, but include a couple of open-ended ones. Now carry out a pilot study – give out at least four or five questionnaires to other students.

  1. How good were your questions? Did your respondents understand what was required?
  2. Did you get the information you required?
  3. This was a pilot study – would you need to change anything at this stage if you were going to continue a large survey?
