Default Share your thoughts about music; help my Ph.D. Dissertation

Hello fellow music fans,

In addition to being an avid music fan I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Texas – Pan American. My dissertation is focused on music fans; I would love your help with taking a short survey… AND each completed survey taker will be entered into a drawing for a new iPad.

The survey should only take about 5 minutes, and you’re welcome to pass it along to as many people as you’d like. The only requirement is that the survey-taker must be 18 years or older.

Thank you!
Paul Barretta / The University of Texas – Pan American

As a fellow graduate student, I wholeheartedly encourage people to help this dude out.

Plus his research topic sounds way cooler than mine.

Yes; it`s a very simple and painless process. Good luck with the research, Paul.

I think UTPA needs to look into subscribing to an HPR program, where social science undergrads are required to take grad students' surveys as part of their intro course grade. Just a thought. Would make things a lot easier.
Anywho, I'll take the survey as well.

Thanks Ki, Lisnaholic, Burning and Gunnels.
Gunnels... Our undergrads take our surveys quite often. In fact, they were the survey-takers for my pilot survey that led to this final version. The pilot survey had 75 questions!

The reason for NOT usign undergrads for this stage is that the sample should be as widespread as possible so that the results can be reflective of a larger population. If I were to use only UTPA undergrads, then I would have the limitation that the results reflect the perceptions of undergraduate college students in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. However, by gathering data from the entire world, I can make the claim that the results are representative of a larger population.

Thanks very much for your participation, and if you could pass it along that would also be appreciated.

- Paul

Not to throw a wrench in anything...but wouldn't asking us to help you out bias your results towards avid music listeners?

Most of us are pretty obsessive about music.
