Preparation for Following School Year: May 2016 Online Survey

In May 2016, I conducted three anonymous online surveys in order to help me prepare for the 2016-17 school year.

Survey 1

Not so much: 😭 11%

Option 3: Picture Description: 17%

Survey 2

The question: Which class activity do you like best? shows up in all three surveys, but with different choices. I’m trying to compare activities to see in order which is the most popular, second, third…

The surveys give me a clearer picture of student interests in the activities and in the class overall.
