    As well as being a TA I am also a student completing their final year of a degree. I am wondering if I am allowed to post content regarding my dissertation on here such a a questionnaire. Or whether some of you may like to participate.
    My dissertation is about professionals perceptions and definitions of inclusion.

    Lots of people do this.
    Survey monkey is the usual anonymous way people go about it.
    No idea how many responses they get.

    Not forbidden as long as it's for personal study (questionnaires with a commercial purpose are generally not allowed).

    Quite a few get posted although as I recall they mostly don't get many people replying. 'Questionnaire fatigue', I guess, teachers just have so much else to do.

    If you do post it give some explanatory context. More detail on what you are exploring and who the target audience for your questionnaire is (primary? secondary? both? SEN?), and what qualification you are studying for.

    And don't be surprised if some people point it out if, from their professional perspective, they feel some of your questions are ill thought out or badly drafted.

    I am a fully qualified teaching assistant who has worked within primary and special education. I am currently in the 3rd year of my degree studying BA(Hons) children, schools and families. After this I aim to go into family support work.

    I am looking for participants for my dissertation. I am looking for teachers, teaching assistants, HLTA, SENCOs, Headteachers, Assistant Headteachers who would not mind filling out my questionnaire.

    To tell you a little bit about my research I am exploring
    • How different professionals define inclusion
    • How professionals definitions of inclusion differ from that expressed within literature
    • What are professionals perceptions of inclusion.
    If people do not mind filling out my questionnaire it would be greatly appreciated.

    My questionnaire is completely anonymous and you can with draw at any time up until the date listed on the questionnaire.

    Here is the link for the questionnaire: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1...K-M45S5tEvAWsKBKdfXL4rpw/viewform?usp=sf_link

    Anyone know why when I try to post my questionnaire as a thread it keeps being declined for being advertising or spam when it is for personal study and people have previously posted theirs on the same forum

    It has appeared now.

    Are you sure that was why it didn't appear immediately? Usually it's because new members are pre-moderated until they have an "established posting record" (not defined!).

    Yes I got a message to say so

    The dots question was tricky as 'none of the above' wasn't an option.
