Hi Sajjal,
Your effort if good and will give you the required result. Group the questions on areas like communication, leadership, motivation etc and check the averages. You can get into the depth og these groups (question wise analysis) later on and highlight those which are of concern. Also make sure you give recommendations in your presentation.
Hope this helps

Hi! Thanks for your reply. Thats a great idea! Didnt consider grouping the like questions together and giving an overall picture. Thanks! It definitely helped :)

Grouping like questions is a good idea; however it should be based on statistical tests. As you are an undergraduate, and may not have been taught, you can mention the limitations of your questionnaire. Please see How to Create Survey Questions | eHow.com and Qualities of a Good Survey Question

Hi Simham:
Thanks for the links, they were quite informative.
I have actually formulated the questionnaires based on a couple of motivational theories. I was thinking of merging the like questions under the common concepts by each theory, and analyse them accordingly. That way I could back up the analysis with theory concepts. Would that be ok?
Thanks for your help.

In my opinion, writing survey report for the results shown in sample is rather easy. But if you are interested in writing a solid poicy oriented report, you have to bifurcate these results in various sub-categories (worker, supervisor, manager - age groups 25-30, 35-40, and gender wise male/female). It will give you handle and strong conclusion that if some people disagree with a proposal, who they are and what type of policies should be adopted to satisfy them or how include them in the process of change.
Good Luck!

Moinkhan's idea is good provided you have gathered info from enough people. As your total responses is only 40, commenting on differences among different age groups, postions, etc., may not be statistically valid. You need to apply test to see if the differences are significant. Hence, make sure that you put a note to that efdfect in your analysis or conclusion sections.
Have a nice day.

Hi, my data includes students' grades (X, XII and college) and their responses for different factors like study habits(3 questions), personality traits (5 questions) etc on 5-point scale (5 – Always, 4 – Often, 3 – Sometimes, 2 – Rarely, 1 – Never)
My objective is to study "factors affecting academic performance of students"
1. Should I consider median for each question and then compare it for male and female group by using chi-square test?
2. How can I measure the effect of these factors on students grads?
Please help. I am stuck ..
