For your final project you will pick a topic for experimentation. You will create a survey and use the survey to collect your first set of data. This survey should be without bias and the data collected should be as “true” or “good” as possible. Then you will collect your second set of data, this time trying to create bias on purpose. This might mean that you change the wording of your question, require participants to answer face-to-face (when perhaps your original survey allowed them to answer anonymously), change your appearance when you ask the question, etc. The idea is to examine how your data changes based on bias. Your project should answer one of the following questions:
Does the way a question is worded create response bias?
Do the characteristics of the interviewer create response bias?
Does anonymity change responses to sensitive/personal questions?
You will write a report and create a poster/presentation/visual summary of your findings.
