There is also a questionnaire available for Universities and Colleges.

The first 9 (or 10) questions are the same on each. After that, each questionnaire has its own style.

Be sure to choose one that is most appropriate for your school and please review it with your advisor

    Optional Question
  1. You are more attracted to:
    1) same gender
    2) opposite gender
    3) any gender
    4) prefer not to say

This optional question allows each participant to indicate what gender they are more attracted to.

This further enhances everyone's matches without actually showing anyone's individual preference on the printouts.

This question is an option for schools with an active Gay-Straight-Alliance Club but it is not required to produce an all inclusive printout.

If this is something you want, be sure to say 'YES' to the gender preference question when ordering your questionnaires.

The first 9 (or 10 if using a gender preference questionnaire) questions cross match each person's characteristics with each person's preferences. For example: we give a higher percentage rating for tall people for people that prefer someone tall. This makes your matches much more accurate!

Remaining Questions

Yes!

Decide whether or not you want the gender preference question and then download our custom questionnaire template.

If you are using paper questionnaires, use our template to print out your own custom questionnaires, or we can print them on the back of our answer forms for $0.03 each. Either way, you still need to place an order for scannable answer forms (bubble sheets) for your students to answer their questions on.

If you are using an online survey, use our template to make up your own custom questionnaire, email your questionnaire to us, and we will put it online for you - for free!

Yes!

If your school has enough tablets, computers, or smart phones we can email you a link to an online survey dedicated just for your school.

You then distribute this short link to your students for them to complete their survey online.

Simply email (or call) us when your students are done filling out their surveys. We will then close your survey, grab your data, and print out your printouts. We can even let you know how many students have completed your survey as it progresses.

Just like paper questionnaires, it works best to have everyone fill out the survey at the same time. This guarantees the maximum participation rate, but it is not required.

Order in December or early January,

to give yourself lots of time to organize - especially if you have exams in January!

Your goal should be to get your printouts by February 6th so that you have a week to sell them before Valentine's Day.
