Hi jhon,

You might want to take another look at those questions and reword them slightly.

OK, I see that you have tried to use the same 5 answers - but the answers do not fit the questions if you do that. (Except for the first question).

eg. "Would you be willing to. ...."
Answer: "None" , or answer: "a lot"
It just doesn't work.

thank you for your reply, these question are the ones that my professor approved and she wanted all to have the same kind of answer, I'm sorry if some dont sound right, english is not my first language and I tried to make them sound coherent

You could do a 1 to 10 with one being "No interest or understanding, and 10 being Very informed/interested. or similar, and slightly rephrase the questions so the replies are in context.

A professor approved that.

No wonder the country's in such a state.

I would say e for all of them except on cost. I will invest, but it needs to be good value and not just tech for the sake of it.

jhon do you have ethical approval from the university for doing this? (not from your professor from the ethics committee) although it might seem just a little survey this sort of thing does need ethical approval when done as part of a research project. Part of that ethical approval would be likely to require responses to be anonymised. By asking people to respond on an open forum, albeit with pseudonyms, you haven't done that.

In our place gaining approval woudl just require completing a form describing your project and how you intend to collect, store and use data, usually have a decision within two weeks.

Once you have ethical approval it would be worth making this into a Survey Monkey survey (google will show you the site), that works very well for this type of basic survey with a Likert scale.

edited to add I agree those questions need rewording, think what you're asking and why when writing the survey

Good luck with your project
