Here’s a good example.

concussion survey

A researcher is trying to determine how much Trampoline and Gymnastics coaches know about concussions.

I filled out the online survey in about 10 minutes. It’s better than some, though still includes some questions more appropriate for team sport than our own.

At the end are open ended forms where you can write in your personal feedback.
