Hi Liz,
Some great questions. It will be interesting to see how the students respond and if there are differences between the different states and territories.
Just wondering if you need to add in Q5 that the use is for academic purposes? At the minute the question just asks about use.
Possibly too make the language clear about what use means for Q6 in the question stem at the very start. Is use just using or is it for academic purpose.
Hope you get some great data.
