Good Old Simple Surveys

This week in my senior Physical Education class, the students designed a survey that sought to gauge the reasons why adolescents participated within Physical Activity. The survey contained questions surrounding all aspects of being active. In order to make this all possible the students designed their survey using www.obsurvey.com, within minutes they had a survey that was ready for the web.

The most exciting aspect of Obsurvey was the ability to share to their personal Facebook accounts. With this in mind, the student’s were really keen to draw on the connections they have online to complete their surveys. ¬†From my point of view the plus side of using this simple service, was the fact that on return to class the students were able to look through an extensive series of responses that informed a major assessment piece.

Never underestimate the power of a simple survey for collecting responses from the wider world.

  1. Thanks for the reminder of the power of surveys, especially in the PDHPE.
    I had not tried obsurvey and tried it out. It has quite abit of functionality which is great. It looks like a product that may also get beter with time as the neaten it up a bit.
    I have been using google forms (as you added is another way of collecting data) i like the spreadsheet output of google forms then the collaborative nature of the data but it has its limitations as well. But they do look cool!
    Thanks again for your post. Cheers Rolfe

  2. good one Jarrod. I’ll definitely test this out :)
