All the other question are phrased as if asking locals the question so why have you come here to ask us?

I love number 15 though.
Expats usually come from overseas. What atmosphere did they create to draw this impression from you?

#-o Who woulda thunk! :shit:

I hope this survey is for a PSLE project. Cause if it for anything higher, educational standards here are really slipping.

Hey Melody welcome. I don't like raining on anyone's parade, but I'm a little concerned as to how statistically valid you think your results can be, given the structure of the responses to each question, and the questions themselves.

In what way to you plan on analysing your survey results?

It seems to me you may like to revisit what information you are trying to capture, and in what way you are planning on analysing it, then how your analysis will create either a hypothesis or additional data.

Just trying to help! Ms. C and I shall fill it in for you anyway. Don't hesitate to contact me if you want a bit of help - have a lot of experience with this kind of stuff.

HTH, Mr. P

Rong! :P

They will not be able to SEND PM's. They can receive them okay. Just can't answer them.

I had a look, but decided to pass. The questions just aren't worded in a way to give any kind of valid statistic. I couldn't even figure out 14 or 15... I think the questions showed more of a stereotype about expats than the results ever could. Sorry Melody.

can i suggest to participate but answer the questions in the most random / unpredictable / crazy / mess up way? maybe even post the link somewhere and invite the people to do just that to mess up the results...

at least thats what i always do when i get surveys anywhere (not only in singapore by kids)

for this particular case, somewhere in my brain it sounds like a good lesson that will prepare them for life outside the island of dr. lee

Well that's not a very kind approach is it?

I guess because I have a child at university I'd like to let Melody know her survey is misses the mark in hopes she can correct it. There's a grade riding on this and sheesh! we all make mistakes...

Good grief of course but then it wouldn't work properly anyway.

Do I really have to spell out everything here without attracting some form of consternation and useless hyperbole?

"...please do not hesitate to contact me..." meant the student could repost here and I would help them out. Perhaps it's too hard or difficult (or should I explain that also?) to understand some of us actually try to help people here - in the same way as we were helped.

Sorry if the survey may seem a little lacking but we were targeting Locals until we decided to make it open to expats to get their general opinion. So please stop criticizing and try coming up with one yourselves. We are inexperienced in this field, and thanks for your honest opinion. We are getting the no. of responses from each question, plot a graph and try to infer from the results why it is that way.
