We are a group of graduate student researchers at School of Journalism and Mass Communications, University of Wisconsin-Madison. We are interested in learning how UW-college students learn about the scientific facts related to their daily lives on campus. As such, I am writing to ask for your participation in a survey. The purpose of this survey is to improve college students’ skills to detect correct scientific information online and improve their knowledge.
This survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. To thank you for your time all of those who complete the survey will be able to earn 0.5 extra credit for your course that directs you to this study. All data collected from this survey will be confidential. In the end of the survey, you will be required to enter your name, course number and your NetID, but we will not access your individual responses.
The survey will be open from March 8, 2018 through March 31, 2018. Feel free to direct your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or ywu42@
wisc.edu. Please find the direct link to the survey here: https://uwmadison.co1. qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ 8dZGQfxJCFPa9fv
