File 5: Genre Survey


Surveys are a great instrument to collect data from the general population about any topic. Also, they provide easy to process data so that all sorts of graphics and statistics can be generated. The biggest effort that goes into a survey is the creation of the questions. It is extremely important that questions are made in such a way so they are easy to understand by everyone. If the questions are understood then we will be able to obtain true facts about our topic. If people do not understand the questions, they might answer incorrectly, leaving us with unreal information.

As long as you know what topic interests you, what you want to know about the topic and how to make the right questions, you can create all sorts of surveys to collect people's opinions.



1. TASK DESCRIPTION
  • Create a five question survey about any given topic, the more specific the better, from which you collect data and process it into line, pie or bar graphics in order to show people's opinion, resulting in a conclusion based on the results obtained.
  • This task is done in teams of 2 or 3 members.
  • There can be more than one general topic but only one specifc topic per survey.
    • more than one team may have the topic "cars" but only one team can have the topic "fast and expensive blue cars".
2. WHAT I NEED

The survey may be done printed or digitally but either way do not use a handwritten survey as the instrument for collecting data.

If it is done on paper:

  • a piece of paper
  • a word processor
  • the questions agreed on by the team
  • a printer
  • photocopies of the printed survey

If it is done digitally

  • a google account
  • Spreadsheet in Google Drive
  • the questions agreed on by the team
  • the link to the published form
  • presentation software or material for creating a poster

Either printed or digital, everyone in the class should be able to answer the survey.

3. RECOMMENDED RESOURCES
4. STEPS TO FOLLOW
  • Meet with your team to decide the specific topic for the survey
  • Brainstorm questions and narrow them down to five
  • Double, triple and quadruple check the structure and meaning of the questions.
  • Determine the type of answers you want from each question
  • Decide the type of graphics that will be generated
  • Collect answers with your survey either by paper or digital but not both.
  • Count and organize the answers
  • Generate one graphic per question
  • Look at the results as a team and create conclusions based on the statistics
  • Create a poster or presentation with your results
  • Take notes on what will be said in the presentation
5. HOW WILL I KNOW I HAVE FINISHED?
  1. We have the answered surveys either on paper or in a digital file.
  2. We have analysed the data and come to conclusions.
  3. We have prepared a presentation which has the questions, the graphics and our conclusions.
  4. We have notes to help us in our presentation.
6. HOW WILL I PRESENT THIS IN CLASS?

This is a data presentation task in which case the team presents the findings in front of the class.

Presenting Results

  1. My team and I present our finding in class.
  2. We may use posters or a digital presentation
  3. My teammates and I take turns in presenting our results and conclusion.
  4. Our presentation should last between 10 and 15 minutes.
7. HOW WILL THIS TASK BE EVALUATED

This task is the second of three contained in Unit 5. The values presented here are partial to the 50% grade value the unit has in addition to the Learning Journal and Ongoing Evaluation.

The task evaluation will be based on how well you negotiate with others as well as arrive at solutions in order to complete a complex set of activities and achieve a desired result. Also, the team presentation will be taken into consideration.
