# Stacking Surveys

Description

In this worksheet, students complete a survey themselves, rating a number of items on a 1-5 Likert scale. This information can then be entered into a spreadsheet as a group or a class, and turned into a graph. This is most easily done by using the average function as shown on the worksheet.

This is the final assessment activity of a larger unit designed for Year 4 that helps students develop their statistical investigation skills by walking them through the necessary stages to plan, conduct and analyse a statistical investigation and then communicate their findings.
