CensusAtSchool 2012/2013 uses an online questionnaire to capture learners' data, the resultant data can then be used with our resources and lesson plans. As usual these are free, downloadable and contain a variety of classroom activities. To be able to collect your data you will need to be registered on the site, as you need to enter the relevant LEA code and school number. If you have not already done so, you will find the register button on the main menu bar (to the left of the screen).
To get results you will need to go to 'Get Data' and then 'Request Your School's Data'. Make sure that you are logged in first.
There is also a short probability game at the end of this questionnaire that can be used as an introduction to tree diagrams, supporting resources for the game can be found below. Please note that the game requires the Flash browser plugin to work correctly.

The 'Teacher's Notes' includes questionnaire details, required equipment and a suggested lesson structure. The 'Get Started Guide' explains how to fill out the questionnaire.
