Project: Survey Project
For this project you are going write a survey, gather responses from at least 100 people, summarize your data with graphs the make conclusions based on your data.
You may team up in pairs to gather data. You may talk to each other about the questions posed below, HOWEVER, each team member must use their own words to answer the questions in their project. In other words, the team members cannot submit identical projects even though they are using the same data.
Create the required graphs in Excel/Sheets/etc, then copy and paste them into the final document. (Do not submit your Excel/Sheets/etc. document. The graphs should be cut and pasted into your final document before you convert it to a PDF.)
You should submit a single PDF The final submission should have all of the tasks listed below in the order they are listed.
(We’ve noticed that people who include the task number before their work tend to have better organization in their final submission. Here’s an part of an assignment from a previous student as an example:
“Task 1: I chose to ask people about their favorite fast-food restaurant and the super power they would like to have. I choose these questions because…”
“Task 2: My group and I surveyed 100 people by…” )
