As part of the launch of this resource, we invite teachers and students  to participate in a research study that we are conducting into students’ knowledge and understanding of the women’s suffrage movement.

This research (in the form of a quiz for students) is planned to support an evaluation into the impact of the materials on this website. The focus of this research is on investigating students’ ideas and knowledge about women’s suffrage and the impact that learning about this history might have on their democratic engagement.

This research involves a pre- and post-intervention survey quiz. The first stage is the administering of an online electronic survey or quiz to any classes you are thinking of using the HA materials with. It could be set as a homework survey or class-based quiz activity and takes about 20 minutes to complete.

There are two options to support the administering of this - a PowerPoint version for use in class or at home, or an online version of the survey, which can be accessed and completed here: https://oxford.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/suffrage-evaluation

Anyone completing the quiz with students using the PowerPoint and pens and paper can collect in class sets of answers and return them using a stamped addressed envelope upon request. Full details are in the documents attached below.

The second stage of the research will be to administer the same survey/quiz immediately after you have finished using the teaching materials.

The answers to both stages would be provided anonymously and data from the quiz/survey will be aggregated. No judgements about what students said will be made; rather,  the nature of student understanding will be analysed. Aggregate results will not be attributed to individual schools or teachers.

The data collected will be kept strictly confidential and will not be used for additional purposes without the further consent of all involved being obtained.  All data will be destroyed at the end of the research period, and kept in locked or password-protected conditions until then.

If you would be willing to take part, please let us know by completing and returning the documentation below.

If you have any further questions about this study, please contact Dr. Jason Todd.
