Editing survey: Now open

Readers of this blog are invited to participate in a survey meant to help assess professional priorities for journalism education. The survey takes less than 25 minutes to complete. Participants are first asked for some demographic information (such as age range, education level, professional experience, etc.) and then are asked to rate a series of sample sentences on grammar and style issues. Journalists and nonjournalists are both welcome to participate. The survey is anonymous, and your identity is not associated with any answers you provide.

Please write to me using the address at right if you have any questions, or proceed to the survey site (link below) to participate. Thank you for your consideration.

Please make sure that you publish the raw data in addition to your analysis.

I'll do this as soon as I finish the story on Romenesko about the New Hampshire sportswriter who was running a call-girl ring.

Why didn't I think of that?

Thanks, very fun. Wish I could have changed my answers two or three times. Pushing "next" on those questions was like closing the car door car then seeing my keys hanging from the ignition.

And seeing that I had written "car" twice. Ha!

One suggestion from a former newspaper gal: Reconsider language when you are asking about companies gaining/losing jobs. Not all journalists work at newspapers. Some of us even remember grammar.
