Description

Survey research is all around us. We are exposed to surveys so frequently that we
sometimes do not even realize they are there! In this Take-Home Activity, you will find a survey
somewhere in your everyday life (whether it be on social media, in the mail, at the mall, while
online shopping, or anywhere else) and identify a few key components that are important within
survey research.

The goal of this activity is to expose you to surveys that are distributed every day and to begin
identifying key concepts discussed in quantitative research.

You will do the following:

1. Identify the survey (5pts): Take a picture of the survey or describe it in detail about the
types of questions it asked.

2. Answer the following questions (5pts):
1. What mode of data collection did you receive this survey?
2. What is 1 pro and 1 con for that specific mode of data collection?
3. Will this survey contribute to a primary source or secondary source?
4. Were there open-ended questions, close-ended questions, or both?
5. How long did the survey take? What was your reaction to the length of the
survey?
