2016 Season - More Numbers

Jun 14, 2016 Written by Frank Merrick.


We recently pulled some survey results from the 2016 FRC Post-Season Survey that was sent out to all participating teams. Two key questions we asked were about the overall quality of FIRST Robotics Competition and the level of satisfaction with FIRST Robotics Competition. 

A summary table of average ratings, on a scale of 1 (worst) to 10 (best) is below. We thought it might be interesting to separate out Regional Team versus District Team responses, along with Mentor versus Student responses. You can find a pdf file with greater detail here, if you are interested.

As I’ve said before, response information from surveys like these should be taken with a grain of salt.  This is not a scientific survey.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their summer!

Interesting version of Simpson's Paradox in Q5. Mentors prefer regionals and students are exactly tied, but the overall results show a higher preference for districts.
