Points to consider:

A few points to consider when putting together the survey –

1. The customer wants respondents who are under 18 years of age.  So, how should you design a survey that appeals to minors?  Many minors are accustomed to multiple choice or yes/no questions.  Plus, unless it is something they are very interested in, minors tend to have a very short attention span.  So, the questions and choices need to be short and specific.

2. Most likely, you will not have a test group that consists only of minors.  So, in your instructions to your test group, make them aware that you are asking for their input in the design of the survey.  In other words, you want the testers to “pretend” they are minors and give you input on the format of the questions.  Were the questions and answers easy to understand?  Did the choices include all possible outcomes?

3. Include a few questions related to validation.  For example, ask a question about age group (such as 6-9, 10-13, 14-18) AND a question about what school they are attending (elementary, middle, high).  If a respondent states an age group of “6-9” and “high school,” then the information you receive from that respondent might be questionable.

4. Keep in mind that the target audience is minors.  Survey developers must be very careful in framing questions.  Avoid questions that are too personal or makes the respondent feel awkward.
