Evolution in the Classroom Survey
As part of a student made project, I have created a survey about evolution education https://docs.google.com/forms/d/19bAxL7H...o/viewform

I would like people to take it and let me know what I should change. I wish to eventually print out this survey and pass it out to people at the library to get a survey of college students' experiences with evolution in high school. I also plan on interviewing science profs asking them how they feel about current creation vs evolution debate and whether students are adequately prepared for college level science.

Constructive criticism only. Don't be a dick.

I would put a definition in there - some places intentionally try to confuse evolution and adaptation. Define exactly the idea you are getting at, seems petty, but after talking with my YEC in laws I've learned a few of the sneaky ways they try to twist words.

One question 'did you learn it in biology class? , I'm wondering if it might be taught in other classes too? Consider You might not want to limit it to just biology class.

I was thinking that (about it not just being in biology) too.

RE: Evolution in the Classroom Survey
What is your religious affiliation? If applicable.

If you did have an evolution education in school, how long did your class spend talking about evolution?
If evolution was included in your class, how much time was spent on it?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Evolution in the Classroom Survey
What did your parents believe about evolution vs. creationism in the classroom?

What did your parents think about the teaching of evolution vs. creationism in the classroom?

I think that's what you meant and the question is now clearer.

RE: Evolution in the Classroom Survey
A good question might be:

What was your teacher's views on evolution?



I know that some of my 'colleagues' have said things to the effect of "well since the state requires that I talk about evolution, we have to spend some time on it, but I don't really like it."

No, that is a terrible question.

"What were your teacher's views on evolution?" would be a good question.
