Physics Research Survey and Contest

One of my colleagues at Union is doing a physics education research project with a summer student, and is using an online survey to collect data. Obviously, the more people respond to the survey, the more scientific it becomes (subject to the limitations imposed by relying on self-selected Internet samples, of course), so I offered to plug it here. Here's the blurb and link:

I'm doing a summer research project at Union College with a student, and I need as many people as possible to fill out a survey that we created. If you complete the survey by 11:59pm (EST) on Sunday, August 11, 2013, you will be entered into a raffle to win a Google Nexus 7 Tablet (32Gb), and you will receive an additional entry into the raffle for each person that lists you as a referrer. You can find the survey at It should only take 5-15 minutes. Thanks!

So, you know, have at it. It's for SCIENCE! and you might even win a shiny toy.

I did the survey (for SCIENCE!), but I don't know how useful it will be for them to have results from a PhD Physical Chemist. Maybe I'll get my wife to do it, too.

+1 referral for you. Have you promised the Nexus you're going to win with +n referrals to the birthday girl?

I'm mentioning it in my blog, too, in hopes of getting more people to participate.

Say, do the colleague and summer student have names, or are they planning to remain anonymous? Because you mention no names in your post, and no names are attached to the survey. Is this by design?
