Hi Everyone,

I am a third year student at UWIC (Cardiff Met) currently doing my BA (Hons) Education Studies Dissertation. The topic i am researching is based around teachers perceptions of teaching strategies within secondary history. For the data collection area, i am seeking participants who teach secondary history to fill in a short anonymous questionnaire about the topic. I realise this may not be an ideal way of asking and apologise if this isn't accepted on this forum however I would be grateful for any responses via private mail / e-mail and can guarantee anonymity. I have attached a brief outline of what i am trying to achieve and what my intentions are. I also have a copy of my questionnaire to send out should anyone want to view it.

Edit: Online version via google forms available (thanks to Dave suggesting!) and the link is below.


Thank you very much for reading.

Hi Alan,

I don't know how others feel, but I've never felt that I needed to get permission to answer a questionnaire before! Don't know what advice you've been given, but I wonder if this is overkill?

We have had links to surveys in the past, often done with something like surveymonkey or google forms - you might find you get a better response that way. Not sure many have the time to email you for a copy of the survey.

We generally advise members not to post their phone numbers, and while I appreciate why it's in the letter, you might want to think about remove it - all these posts are publicly available.

Best of luck with the research.

It's mainly to do with ethics, gaining informed consent etc. we have to cover our bases as dissertations are a nightmare. I've looked at survey monkey but the structure doesn't suit my questionnaire.

Not sure what other survey sites are available ill look into google forms.

Alan has now sorted out a Google form for his survey. Only takes a minute or two to fill in and I'm sure the findings will be of interest to all of us - survey is here.

Sorry for not doing this earlier, had assignments coming out of my ears..the joys! Just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who took my survey, it's been a great help and provided me with a lot of useful data to aid my study.
So once again thank you!
