/ participants needed: Bouldering research project
I am recruiting people who take part in indoor bouldering (to any level) and have a job (part-time, full-time, shift-work, placement etc.). If you fit this criteria and can spare 7 minutes of your time, I would really appreciate you taking part in my research, as approved by the University of Surrey Psychology Department. Please also share and spread the word to others!
There is also the opportunity to take part in phase 2 of my study, which is a series of 4 short questionnaires before and after bouldering, and on an evening when you do not boulder, if you fancy adding some information to the psychological/ climbing research field
The link for the questionnaire is: https://surreyfahs.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3IC51v08FXbYWRT
Thank you in advance to anyone who participates!
If you want an accurate response, I can't get past the "Which <u> evenings </u> do you usually boulder?"
Thank you for the feedback. I have amended the survey so that the response is optional!
Still won't let me past. I tried refreshing but no luck.
That's very odd, I have just tried it myself and managed to get through. If you don't mind, could you try it with this link:
I appreciate if you don't want to and thank you for trying regardless!
Nope. I think it's because I've already tried to answer. My previous answers to that point are still there.
Completed. It's an interesting survey, I'll be curious to know what conclusions can be drawn from it.
I've overlooked the assumption that bouldering takes place in the evening, as the majority of mine is done at home in my garage (not a public wall), at random times of day, fitted around my erratic work schedule.
Thank you for participating! If you'd like some information about my findings, when data collection/ analysis is complete I'd be happy to fill you in.
I do recognise that the question about when people boulder on weekday evenings is somewhat assumptive, however I have changed the response to optional, and I would like to mention that I do not presume that people only boulder on weekday evenings, however that is the time in work-stress literature that has been most cited in terms of 'unwinding' from work, hence my particular interest. That being said, for phase 2 of my questionnaire, I would welcome responses at any time, post-work, as I understand the variability in work schedules and demands!
Why collect ethnicity, gender and marital status?
Good question, if I publish my research in a journal, demographic information needs to be presented in my methodology section, in order to discuss the general characteristics of my population. Generally, this is done so that my sample population can be compared to the population of the UK, for example, in terms of the generalisability of my findings. My interest does not lie in this information, it's more of a box-ticking exercise for the academic community.
