Student Surveys: Thank you for helping your fellow students

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Survey #1:

The survey is a great way to help your peers gather information about how you use social media. This isn’t a confession or conviction, we are simply interested in your social interactions online and how they relate to your health, economy and society.

Social Networking Survey

Questions: Contact David Brooks at dbrooks11@georgefox.edu

Survey #2:

This survey is ONLY for sophomores, juniors and seniors.

My study relates to the ways that sports promote moral development and how that compares to other programs on campus.

The survey includes a series of moral dilemmas (cheating, bullying, etc.), and the students are asked to resolve the dilemma and to answer questions regarding the ways they reached their conclusion. The survey and strategy are based on the work of Lawrence Kohlberg, who described a series of stages of moral development.

Behavior and Growth Across Contexts Survey

Questions: Contact Mark Sanchez at msanchez13@georgefox.edu

Survey #3:

Spirituality and Depression are both difficult topics to openly discuss, especially on the George Fox campus. For my senior research project I am trying to see if there is a relationship between the two. Please participate by taking this quick survey. Your response would be extremely helpful!
