Transcript of Way of Finding our Classrooms

School Survey
From the data, we can conclude that the anonymous survey allows people to be more honest due to the large difference in people answering yes to our question. This is proved by our evidence in which 16 out of 45 people who took the anonymous survey answered yes whereas 1 out of 42 people answered yes in the non-anonymous one, Because of the huge difference in percentages between the anonymous and non-anonymous survey, we can conclude that response bias is an effective way to create bias.
Goal of Survey
Using this survey, our goal was to find out if anonymity created a large bias. This was proved when only one person out of all people surveyed without anonymity answered yes to our biased question.
Population of Interest and Bias
-Our population of interest was 10th-12th grade students. However, due to things such as juniors being out of class and chance, our randomly selected classes were all 12th grade students.

-The bias used in this survey was response bias. A survey given to one class asked "Did you participate in any illegal activity during homecoming" while the other was anonymous. This creates bias because people will be more honest when the survey is anonymous.
Way of Finding our Classrooms
We used the point type survey in order to randomly select the classes we would survey. The first step was drawing a picture with all of the classrooms and divided them using a grid. We found our points by using the random digit table,
