MDM4U Bias – 2015-12-03


We learned about four different kinds of bias today:

  • Sampling bias
  • Measurement bias
  • Non-response bias
  • Response bias

Your homework is to write a survey question that could be asked of high school students. It can’t be a yes/no question. Your goal is to avoid bias. The suggested topic is the legalization of marijuana, but you can pick something else if you like.
