Edition 2011, #10 - 8th Grade Questionnaire

8th Grade Questionnaire
by Asia W and Mr. Bill

The 8th graders are our student leaders at St. Ethelreda School. So, we at The Eagle Way were interested in getting the opinions of our 8th graders on a variety of subjects. So, after the long Terranova test, we crafted a questionnaire and asked the 8th to take one more test.

You can see the full questionnaire here: 8th Grade questionnaire.
The 8th graders completed our questionnaire on Tuesday Mar 8, 2011, and results of the questionnaire are given below.

We wish to thank Mrs. Pass and the 8th grade students for the help and cooperation. We took a number of fun photos during and after the test that you can find here: 8th Grade Questionnaire photo set

  1. Good job Mr. Bill and the 8th graders. However from the result of each question, it seems either some votes were missing or some of the class members did not cast their votes because if you add the number of votes casted in each question, none is up to 15. Nevertheless, it is a good job. Bravo!
