Sport Wales: The School Sport Survey goes from strength to strength

Sport Wales is the national organisation responsible for developing and promoting sport and physical activity in Wales. The School Sport Survey is the largest survey, of any kind, of young people in the UK and possibly the largest survey of its kind in the world.

Sport Wales approached Snap’s Research Services team to manage the 2013 School Sport Survey.

  •  The online survey is split into a sport participation questionnaire which is completed by pupils and a sport provision questionnaire completed by a member of the sports teaching staff. 1328 primary, 222 secondary, 69 independent and 42 special schools were invited to take part.  
  • Snap’s online survey management solution collated over 100,000 responses and dealt with up to 5,000 simultaneous log-ins. 947 unique Smart Reports were produced in total. Responses and reports produced were more than double those of the last survey in 2011.

Becca Mattingley, Senior Research and Evaluation Officer at Sport Wales comments, “Snap Surveys provided us with an online survey solution that goes beyond what we had been able to achieve in previous years. “

Smart Reporting allowed us to produce a set of unique reports with data from multiple surveys providing our partners with a comprehensive set of high quality reports that they can use for sports development, educational and planning.”

    Hi Kari,

    I’m most impressed with the formatting of the smart reporting you devised for this project, and the infographic approach. They look amazing.
    Can I ask about the certificates that were produced for the young people – would these have been produced dynamically just before the end of the survey, or after the data has been submitted, as part of a “thanks” page? I’m interested in how this bit worked.
