    Good afternoon, I am interested in people completing this survey when studying, I am doing my own research project called How Long Can You Concentrate For and it is looking at how long the average student can concentrate whilst studying. Please note that this is not affiliated or sponsored by any institution. I am trying to build up my portfolio as when I graduate I would like to move on to doctoral studies. Please find attached a link to the survey document.

    I would say, try to create the survey in some other way where people can fill it out without having to copy or print or scan anything out - it makes it much more likely for someone to respond.

    Given what is written in your survey requires answers over a period of time, perhaps you can make it so that you're asking about the past 5 days in someone's life rather than asking them to record in the future?

    Good luck!

    Thank you for your advice, I think I may go about it this way.
