Project Reflection & Advice
I would advise all future students doing this project to obtain a very, very large sample size. I thought that my survey was not very hard to complete, with only ten questions taking a total of 3 minutes, at most. However, my response rate was only 20% (14 out of 70), and it was very difficult to derive any conclusions from such a small amount of data. Besides that, I found it was very helpful to sort my data by different categories and then look for patterns. With the data in a random order it is much more difficult to observe trends and possible relationships that might be obviously apparent when sorted.
