Suggestions for questions or scales to be included in the MCS5 survey

We are seeking suggestions for questions to be included in the Age 11 Survey. If you have any suggestions, please send them, along with justification of their importance, and full references of any other surveys they have been used in and any research papers they have been published in to Mina Thompson.

Working groups

We will be putting together working groups of experts to advise the CLS team on the content of the next survey. There will be a working group for each of the main areas of the survey along with one on survey methodology. If you would like to be on one of the working groups, please email Mina Thompson stating your area of interest/expertise and attaching a short CV. We are interested in experts at all stages of their career.

Consultative conference

A consultative conference on the content of the Age 11 Survey will be convened by CLS in Summer 2010. This will be open to all.
