RBI Questionnaire - June 2014

Description:

Before we start, I want to ask if you would like to participate in a study with the Minnesota Twins. This will help us learn more about how your involvement in the RBI program impacts areas of your school life. We will ask you to answer a series of questions twice a year (today and in December).

Did you talk with your parents/guardians about being in this study and did you both agree it was okay?

Because we'll need to get in touch with you in December, we need your phone number and email address. Other than those two questions, your answers are private and will not be shared with your parents, teachers, coach, or anyone else.

Your answers will help us give recommendations to the Minnesota Twins to improve their RBI program, so please try to answer the questions as honestly as you can.


Enter study ID number.

The first group of questions will give us some background information on you as a participant in the RBI program.
