2.4 Questionnaire

The students were asked to complete a questionnaire after they had completed the trial to allow the presentation of quantitative measurements of their opinions of Python.

They were asked to indicate how strongly they agreed or disagreed with a series of contentious statements about Python. Their responses were not anonymous but the questionnaire was not completed in the presence of a demonstrator. The results were cross-referenced with their initial emails indicating their interest in participation, in which they were asked to rate their programming ability from one to ten.
