RE: [nc-whois] IMPORTANT - basketing, empty fields

Thanks, Thomas.

I apologize for being one of the late folks. I am working to get most of my responses done. I may not complete all 150, but I will do completely, all I do.

Thakns for that heads up.

Finally, Many of you have completed your assignments, and Tony and I appreciate that! Some of you are in my "space" and keep working!  If you are not going to complete any of your assignment, please let me, Tony, and Thomas know, off list. Thanks. 

Thomas, Abel, Kristy, thanks again for your support.

Subject: [nc-whois] IMPORTANT - basketing, empty fields

I've started to look at the results submitted to me so far.  I do  
not yet have enough data in order to produce really good results.   
Please submit more. ;-)

There are a couple of things which all those who have submitted so 
far seem to have done right, but I think I should mention these:

 - Please make sure that you clearly distinguish questionnaires you  
   didn't look at (leave field empty) from ones which just don't have 
   an answer (0 basket). The distinction is important because, for 
   the numbers we'll ultimately work with, the questionnaires you 
   have looked at form the total set.
 - As a corollary, please operate systematically.  Handling, for  
   instance, all empty responses to question 10 first as a shortcut,  
   but only basketing half of the questionnaires which do contain  
   responses, will inevitably skew our results.  Don't do it.

Thank you!
