Student reflections of the Erasmus+ project - Finland
Student survey in Metsäkylän yhtenäiskoulu was performed between March 20th-24th, 2017. All students from grades 3-7 answered the questions, because they have been part of the program from the start. Students who were in 6th grade when the program started (2014), moved to a different school and were part of the program only for a year. They haven't answered this survey.
337 students answered the survey. Some students left part of the questions empty, so there is a variety in the total number of answers per question.
