Posted by Miguel on Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 12:29am.

I'm conducting a research project on "to what extent are college students addicted to text-based college communication?"

this is my survey I created. Is this a good survey? and how do I evaluate my responses from, let's say, 50 surveys to table data to show how addicted/or not addicted colleges are to text-based communication?
