Skeptiko - What I Know

#2
I think too many of those questions are ambiguous. For example,

"Scepticism is a part of science" - does that mean it should be a part of science, or that it really is a part of science as currently practised?

I think a thread in which people could state their own views at length without discussion with others would be a better approach.

I don't like tick boxes - they trivialise everything!

Creating good surveys is an Art all it's own.

Generally speaking, participants should be given no more than five choices for each question.

The "No to Yes" or "Least Satisfied to Most Satisfied" gradient should be the same direction for each question, never reversing to "Yes to No".

Questions should be precise, not vague.

I'm starting to ask Skeptiko guests to play around with this questionnaire I've put together. please give it a shot and tell me what you think:

It may be a good idea - if it is technically possible - to let the one fulfilling the questionnare to give both positive and negative (ideally, also neutral) answers. This means, not just to tick or not to tick a particular box, but, for example, put a "plus" (approval), a "minus" (disapproval) or a "zero" (neutrality) there.
