>>On another issue, I am collecting data for my dissertation from college
>>freshmen around the country (approximately 10 colleges thus far, from
>>community colleges to Harvard). The topic involves students' evolutionary
>>misconceptions. I have designed a 30 question, anonymous, multiple-choice
>>survey that takes 10-15 minutes to complete. Can you help? Do you or does
>>anyone you know teach freshmen classes (science or nonscience)? Would you or
>>they be willing to administer the survey? I will send all the surveys needed
>>with a pre-paid self-addressed return mailer.
>>Thanks for any assistance you can give me,
