100 Students Project: Revising Questions & Planning the Survey

Unit 9: Statistics
Lesson 3 of 22

Objective: I will be able to: • Define bias and identify how a biased question can affect survey results. • Define population and sample and how they can affect survey results. • Revise the survey questions so that they are clear and unbiased.

Big Idea: How can the wording of a question influence how people respond? Students learn about biased and unbiased questions, revise the questions they create in the previous lesson, and agree on procedures for administering the survey.
