Survey Data Collection


Survey boxes with one checked

Theses survey questions are how we recommend collecting data where researchers would like to know the gender identity or sexual orientation of their participants.  Response options are listed in alphabetical order to make sure students who don't identify with the majority do not feel othered; additionally, reading through the list to find the participant's identity helps to educate them on the existance of additional identities.
