Maths education questionnaire:
The purpose of this questionnaire is to find out about your earlier educational experiences, as far as learning maths is concerned. We will use these data as material for practice in using SPSS. I will collate the responses from you all, and construct an SPSS spreadsheet. Later in the course, you will think up questions that could possibly be answered with these data (e.g. "are men more anxious about statistics than women?", or "are people who had good experiences of maths at school now less anxious about studying statistics at university?") These questions will be used as the basis for the lab-report that you have to submit for Research Skills One in week 11 of this term
Please answer each question as accurately and as honestly as you can. Your answers will remain completely anonymous. Participation in this research is entirely voluntary: you do not have to complete the questionnaire if you do not wish to, and you are free to withdraw from the study at any time should you wish to do so, without any penalty. By completing the questionnaire and returning it to Dr. Graham Hole at the end of the session, you consent to your data being entered into the SPSS spreadsheet and disseminated (in this anonymous fashion) to other students in the group.
