C-Car Volume Study Fall 2012 Instructions

Here are instructions for the Ccar Volume Study that will begin on Monday, October 29.

Please count all items delivered the weeks of October 29 and November 5, that is from Monday, October 29 through Friday, November 9. (This is the first time we are asking you to collecting data for two weeks. This will give us more data and will make the resulting estimate more accurate.)

Count all items delivered on these days no matter when you unpack them.

[For example:
If delivered on Friday, Oct. 26, but you don’t unpack it until Monday, Oct. 29 morning? – Don’t count it
If delivered November 9, but you don’t unpack it until Monday November 12? – Count it.]

Count each item individually, i.e. anything you would circulate as one item.
CD boxed set = 1
3 books elasticized together= 3

Question: If Ccar missed a delivery – should you make up a day in the next week?
Answer: No.

THEN: Enter results in Survey Monkey at:

You may enter the data each day or you may save up your numbers and enter them all at once at the end of the study. We will keep the survey open through Wednesday, November 21.

I will compile the data and report the results after November 21, most likely the week of November 26.

If you have any questions, please contact me. Thank you in advance for your participation.
