Highlights and Homework for the weekend – 23rd Dec’16

Highlights and Homework for the weekend – 23rd Dec’16

Language : Students practiced their speech on ‘My teacher’. Verbal feedback for the speech was given by the teacher.

Maths :

Learners were introduced to Survey and the step to be kept in mind while taking a survey.

Step 1 :Clarify the purpose. In this step, analyse as to why are we doing this survey? What is it that i want to know.

Step 2:Audience.- To know the answers/opinion on the particular query, who should be my target audience? In short, where and from whom can I gather the required data. Basically, Who are the stakeholders?

Step 3: Assess your resources: Check whether you have the necessary things required for the survey.

Step 4: Decide on the most appropriate method: There are various types of survey.

Step 5: Write the questionnaire: In any chosen method, you will need a questionnaire. Decide which questions to ask. Here introduce the students to the different types of questions. There are two main types of questions. OPEN END QUESTIONS and CLOSED ENDED QUESTIONS

Open ended questions- -These questions are those which require more thought and more than a simple one-word answer.

-The answers could come in the form of a list, a few sentences or something longer such as a speech, paragraph or essay. –

These questions are asked without giving any response options. -In these types of questions, the respondents need to create their own answer.

-These type of questions are great for in depth and unbiased opinions. -Open-ended questions are best used when you think that people could have multiple responses/ different opinions.

Example- -What is your favourite memory from childhood? –

What were the major effects of World War II for the United States? –

What were the most important wars fought in the history of India?

Close ended questions- -In closed questions, response categories are provided and respondents simply have to circle or choose an option. -If you can answer a question with only a “yes” or “no” response, then you are answering a close-ended type of question. -Close-ended questions can be answered in only one word or very short phrase.

Example- -Do you have a pet? -Is this your permanent residence?

Step 6: Layout of the questionnaire- To begin writing the questionnaire, list the issues you want to know about under each section. Determine sections based on purpose of the interview. Sections should flow logically. Remember, you only need to ask questions that answer your original research objective (issues).

When framing questions, always remember to check the following: -What do you want to know? -Each question should have an explicit rationale/purpose. -Why is the question being asked and what will be done with the information? Is the response going to be relevant? -The way a questionnaire is laid out can have a big impact on the response rate and the accuracy of the data received. -If the format of the questionnaire is clear and easy to follow, completing the questionnaire will be easier for the respondents. -The questionnaire should be neat, attractive, and convenient for the interviewers to use.

Step 7: Test the questionnaire: Testing is a crucial step in conducting a survey. A test of the questionnaire is an evaluation of the specific questions, format, question sequence and instructions prior to use in the main survey. During the test, check the following: -Is each of the questions meaning what it is intended to mean? Easy to interpret. -Are questions interpreted in a similar way by everyone? -Do close-ended questions have a response which applies to all respondents? -Are the questions clear and understandable? -Is the questionnaire too long? -How long does the questionnaire take to complete?

Step 8: Collect data using the questionnaire

Step 9: Process the data Processing the data involves preparing and translating the data for analysis.(Just like we have learnt earlier, using charts etc). It involves taking the completed questionnaires and putting them into a format (can be graphs/charts) that can be summarized and interpreted.

Step 10: Analyse the data Analysing the survey results is done in order to answer the original questions that were posed for the evaluation. It allows you to draw conclusions. Analysing the results is one of the most crucial steps in the process of ensuring useful findings which accurately reflect the opinions and views of the participants involved and answers the original questions. S

Step 11: Interpret and disseminate the results The results of a survey should be provided back to the stakeholders of the survey through written reports, and/or presentations.

Step 12: Take Action Taking action refers to implementing the changes/learnings (if any) suggested by the results of your survey. It is important to take action and implement changes/learnings in order to make improvements.
