How to collect answers to your yearbook questions

Once you have your crafted bunch of questions, you’re going to want to collect the answers! If you have access to Google, set up a spreadsheet and form to send out.

Free online survey tools, such as Survey Monkey, or Typeform are really quick and easy to set up. If you’ve got a leavers’ year group on Facebook, or Whatsapp send the survey link and give a clear deadline for submitting their answers.

The list of questions above are by no means exhaustive, but I hope it’s given you a few more options for your interview-style profile pages.

If you have any question ideas of you own we’d love to hear them! Use the comments box below, or email [email protected]
