What do children think about the age limit to driving? By Lukas Jenkins Year 5 Wavendon Gate school
Why I chose my research question… My research question is: what do children in years 4 – 6 in my school think about the age limit to driving? I chose it because I was interested in what children thought and overall if they thought it should be higher lower or good how it is.
Research ethics… I made my research ethical this way: I kept the names anonymous and confidential and didn’t harm any participants in my research physically or emotionally.
Data collection In my research I used questionnaires. I decided to use questionnaires because I thought it wouldn’t take as much time as interviews so I would get it done in the time I had. I used random sampling.
Data analysis As for answers to closed questions I tallied them to get my results, while for those to open ended questions I coded them and after that I tallied them.
My research participants All together 25 people filled in my questionnaire
Question 3 What do the children think the age limit is?

Question 7 YesNoNo answer 13111 This question shows if children think there should be an age limit.
My conclusion Most children appeared to think the age limit to driving should not be lower. I think my research went quite well but I think it didn’t go well as much as I wanted it to because I couldn’t finish it in good time due to delays in data collection. It was because I made my questionnaires and then deleted it and then had to make it again. If I was doing it again I would use questionnaires again because you might not have enough time to interview everyone for your research.
