    Survey on student motivation

A questionnaire needs to be devised and I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions. The main thrust is motivation (and not necessarily ICT use) as I am comparing two colleges, one which uses ICT and one that doesn't.

Now, these motivations have many sub-categories............

    Well motivation deals with aspect of moving in the right direction at the right time.There are lot of factors that determine the way a person gets motivated.
    we have to consider factors such as money,reward etc to determine the efficiency of motivation.

    Is the assistance you are asking for to do with designing the survey (and hence, the areas that need to be covered)?
    You are off to a good start in that you have a control group, the college which doesn't use ICT.
    As a start, see
