    Hi there,

    I am developing a student organising application for my final year degree project and I am required to do some data gathering, so I created a online survey.

    So if you have ever done a degree I would really appreciate it if you can take the survey, it will only take a minute.

    You can be 16 when you graduate :eek:

    This popped up at the end, looks a little untidy.

    I'm sure there's a Doogie Howser or two on the forums ;).

    I'm curious. Is this for a thesis paper? What's the topic exactly? Seems like real general questions. Also, if I were you I would certainly survey a windows user's forum as well because your data is too controlled when you attempt to complete a survey such as this by polling people who are clearly Mac users (the majority).

    Im doing a student organising application for the actual project so 50% of the marks are for the coding. As it is built in Cocoa the biased nature of posting it on a mac forums isn't a problem, although I shall post it elsewhere as your point is valid.

    The other 50% is for the documentation, which includes data gathering, UML diagrams, Testing and documentation etc.

    I have done some interviews as well, I just wanted to cover a broad spectrum of techniques.

    It looks like a high school survey. There's no chance that's a university level survey, not a final year project.

    Also since when does a student say they are doing a survey and then actually do one. I thought we were all supposed to just make up the results to fit our preconceptions while throwing a little bit of noise. ;)

    Like I said its used with some other techniques, its just to find out how users record their information and also how age groups/course types affect this. Its not my only source of data gathering just a small overview.

    But that's...that's...that's academic dishonesty!!!

    Oh wait, I did it once too. Nevermind. :D
