We left off on Nov 12th discussing how blogger Jennifer Long invited students to participate in their survey.
Although the survey is still open, the following is a line graph outlining when we received our 86 responses (thus far):
|Figure 1. Responses according to date|
Dr. Long attended Ms. Tanu Halim's classes on November 07th (online, yes, I made an appearance in the online course) and November 9th (in class). November 7th sees the greatest spike. This spike can perhaps be accounted for, if we consider that students were already in front of their computer when they were invited to participate in an online survey. The second spike appears to be on the Sunday or Monday following my visit to the classroom (after the weekend) on the 10th.
I also thought I'd share some of the aggregated information about those taking part in the survey. When speaking about mature students, it became apparent that the majority of our respondents were between the ages of 21 and 25.

What is also informative are their responses to preferences to learning:
