Raphael St-Yves survey report

Raphael St-Yves survey report

Introduction

This survey evaluates the activities of a group of persons in a class of English. The answers, or results, were put together into graphics for a better global vision. If I do this every year, the survey would bring us to evaluation more efficiently the time students spend on activities versus their grades mean.

Methodology

I am able to present you the synopsis of the results of 57 students. My survey is composed of 10 questions referring to different subjects. For example: to know where they live, how many hours do they spend watching TV and how many hours do they give to studying. Most of the questions have multiple choices answers but for few of those questions, the student can add his ideas or comments.

Results :

The results for the followings questions:
How many hours do you study in a week?

Do you work? If yes how many hour per week?
The results show that a student works more hours than the amount of time he spends in studying. The majority of the students study between 3 and 5 hours but work from 10 to 15 hours per week.

Analysis

Students want more money faster. They want to earn some money for their personal needs. For question #7: How do you go to school or work? We can see that 50% of those students go to school by car, so they need to work to pay their cars. Many of the students like to go to the restaurant more than once a week. That is also quite expensive. The student needs money for all these bills and activities that leads him to study less and often work harder, if not only work and stop school.


Conclusion
I learned during the survey that many students wanted their independence for the transport, to go to school by car. It forces the students to work many hours plus the fact that they are actually going to school full time. The hours they take for making money could be used for studying instead. The real question here would be: If students would take hours at work and put them at school, would they get better grades?

Houcine Survey Report
First off, I am not using the survey I conducted because not enough people responded to it. This is why I only have the survey conducted by the other team without the title.

I hope to learn if the youth have responded similar to seniors upon reviewing this survey. I hope to see a difference in response based on the age of people who have responded.

In this survey there are ten questions which are not just short answer or simple yes or no questions. There are questions on involving television, computers, activities and more. Due to the fact that the survey is fairly general, I can not properly entitle it. A total of 57 people have responded to this survey, a lot by my expectations. All questions were multiple-choice, none were open-ended.

The results of question 1 show that 29.6% of people who took the survey were from Longueuil.

I can also see that the people who have responded spend most of their spare time on the computer.

I have concluded that most people are not generally in good health. Many do not get enough exercise, mostly watching TV or playing games either on their computers or some other platform instead of engaging in sports or other outdoor activities. Something I found very interesting is what they consume. I have found that 31.6% of the 57 people have chosen pasta as their favourite meal where I had expected to find pizza or possibly chicken as the most popular dish. Unfortunately the ages of the people who responded to that question are unknown so I can not distinguish which foods are favoured by which age classes. I also believe there is a relation between question 8 and 9 where 40% of people go to restaurants only once a week. Perhaps this is why many do not enjoy pizza, steak or chicken, as much as pasta.

The survey does not allow me to conclude any differences between the young and old because I do not know the age of people who have responded. This is unfortunate because if there was a question such as “What is your age?” I believe I could easily see if age has an effect on response. Personally I think that the age does in fact a profound effect the results of this survey.

Longueuil

I’m going to talk about my city, Longueuil. I live on Lafayette Boul. Around where I live there is some good place where you can have fun or where you can eat. If you want to dance, you can go to Planet Master, on Ste-Foy Street, it is a Club. But if you want to eat you can go to Subways on Cur-Poirier street, you can also go to Tim Horton on the same street and finally you can go o a little restaurant, but the food is not really good, well, not like Subways and Tim Horton.

If you want to have some fun whit friends you can go to Sport CENTER on the same street of Planet Master, but more in west of the Street. In that Sport Center you can play sports like basketball, soccer, badminton, etc. If you don’t want to get sweat you can play pools or baby foot on the same building.
