trying to make a survey (information on tutoring during summer)

Hello everyone, I am trying to develop a survey to ask students if they received the proper resources they needed to have a chance at succeeding in summer school courses. Summer school courses are already stressful enough being so compressed and the combination of this and not having proper resources may lead to (trying to determine this through the survey) students doing poorly.

Background: With any university, there are going to be less students during the summer then the fall and spring semesters. With that said, their are less resources in the summer which means there's less tutors available for students struggling to understand the subject.

I am wondering if you can please give me any feedback to potentially help clarify a question or take out pieces of information you feel is irrelevant etc. Also, if anyone would recommend a website to create the online survey (I don't mind paying for it) I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you

Hi Hakim
Usually surveys attempt to slot people by gender, age and so on, in this case UG and PG as it helps to focus your research. I did this very quickly and by any stretch of the imagination it is not "the perfect survey" but I hope that it will provide you with some additional think points. Good luck. RB
