Year 8 ‘PLACE’ Survey
In Year 8 Geography, students are working on ‘How to collect data from a Survey’, which they have found challenging and interesting.
Their tasks were in depth and included:
Creating a survey or questionnaire on ‘Place’ (Why residents live at their current location)
Accessing Survey Monkey to get direction on ‘how to create a good survey’
Considering key aspects of location (i.e transport access, proximity to work, sports facilities, cost of purchase, shopping centres, medical facilities etc.)
Creating seven questions to collect data on the reasons behind why the person completing the survey chose to live at their address.
Surveying three people (one relative, one neighbour, one other)
Giving the survey a title and instructions on how to complete the survey
Editing and re-editing questions to ensure reliable and valid data.
Well done Year 8 - this was a tough task and you have been completing it with diligence and insight!
