** Description/Survey Question**: This column should contain a description of the variable or the entire survey question if you are using a survey for data collection

** Please Note: **If you are doing a pre/post study you will need variables for each question pre and each question post. For example, Q1 pre and Q1 post. You will also need total scores for pre data and total scores for post data. If you are doing pre/post data collection the same is true, you will need data pre and data post. If you are using two groups remember to include a grouping variable. For example, Freshman students and Senior Students (this will be a categorical variable that you will have to code.
