ARK recently awarded Q-Step prizes for the best questionnaire design by Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology students. As part of their research skills training, students worked in small groups to design a questionnaire for the Northern Ireland Life and Times survey, on a a topic of their own choice. Winning groups investigated attitudes to crime, precarious employment and disability. Many thanks to ARK for judging the competition. Perhaps some of the winning questions will appear in a future survey!
