Purpose We wanted to know how students feel about their teachers, specifically Mr. Spencer, Mrs. Davis, Mr. Baird, Mrs. Squire, and Ms. Lund. Note: we are not comparing these teachers to each other.

Questions Basically, we asked students if they liked these teachers, their grading system, and if they thought they were good teachers.

Procedure Our population is the student body. For our unbiased survey we chose a sample of 20 students per grade, so we would have representation from all the grades. After assigning numbers to each student, we used a random number generator to pick our sample.

Procedure Continued For our biased survey, we did a convenience sample by taking the survey to each of the previously mentioned teacher’s third or fourth hour class. We were trying to bias the survey for teacher approval. Some of the ways we biased it were: By having them fill it out while they were in that teacher’s class. By only asking yes or no questions. By putting at the top a paragraph about how much teachers do for us.

Challenges Finding all 80 students for our unbiased survey was a huge pain! Especially the last 30 or so because most of them were freshman we didn’t know, while the others we either had classes with or knew someone who did. We didn’t think about having them put their grade so we couldn’t separate them by age. Our nonresponse bias for the unbiased was 8% Our nonresponse bias for the biased survey was 1.1% (one kid refused to give it back!) There were a lot of students who had never had these teachers, forcing us to mark them as “Not Applicable” on the unbiased survey.
