    Hiya Guys.

    I am currently in progress of doing a dissertation for the University of Derby. The study title is …. Mountain biker’s risk of injury in relation to their percieved ability. In order to complete this study I need people to fill in a questionnaire.

    It won’t take long to fill out but would be a great help and very appreciated.

    If you are intrested in taking part could you please email me on ….. @yahoo.co.uk">jessicaball_mbs@yahoo.co.uk
    I will then send you the questionnaire and consent form to fill out.

    Thanks for your time,
    Jess

    Survey monkey is a good idea. We see quite a few requests like this on the forum. Would also be interesting to know what course you’re doing and what your hypothesis is.

    Yes i am going to do that too. I am just trying to get as many people from all angles to do it.

    The course I am going is … Outdoor activities leadership and coaching (BA).

    My hypothesis is ….. The higher the perception of ability the higher the risk of injury.

    Interesting, although my first thoughts are its more about the gap between perception and actual ability and as actual ability increases, the likelihood doesn’t increase but the severity does.

    Feel free to send one over. Email in profile.

    I think the survey thing is pretty universal – of my students, I would guess that a survey monkey type approach will get 10x the number of responses to an e-mail or traditional paper filling approach – that said, not all questions can be put properly in a survey monkey type system, and the data isn’t always ‘better’ overall, and they need to learn more about cleaning the data up to make it relevant for drawing conclusions upon.

    I’ll fill in a survey monkey one as long as you promise to share the results / report with us.

    That’s a good point. We’ve almost all filled these out at some point but when did we last get feedback?

    The trouble with survey monkey is that you cannot add a consent form onto it which is needed as rules set by the university.

    I’m game. Email in profile.

    The higher the perception of ability the higher the risk of injury.

    I’m crap, I know I’m crap and still get injured all the time 🙁

    Why would anyone fill in a questionnaire and not consent to the data being analysed?

    Do you want to do a “people are bloody weird” survey?

    So you add a series of questions at the start of the survey that provide the boiler plate text and required answers for the consent requirements.
