McGill University’s International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviours is conducting a research project aimed at better understanding the perceptions of high school teachers concerning students’ risk-taking behaviours. This brief, 20-25 minute survey looks at different adolescent risk-taking behaviors and gambling-related issues. Teacher participation and feedback will help when developing more effective training and school-based prevention programs.

Teacher participation and responses will be anonymous and are greatly appreciated. Should you complete this survey you will have the option to enter into a draw for a chance to win one of four $100 Future Shop gift certificates, with a grand prize being a NetBook (approximate value: $375). The odds of winning depend on the number of survey responses received. Survey answers will be stored separately from the personal information provided for the draw to ensure your responses remain anonymous. The winners of the draw will be contacted at the conclusion of the study.

Please note that due to the nature of the online survey program, it is not possible to save your responses part way through the survey and return to complete the rest of the questionnaire at a later time. This means the survey must be completed in one session.
