On note au passage que « Bien que les questions sont les mêmes, la méthodologie de la collecte des données était différente pour les deux enquêtes. Il convient de garder ces différences à l’esprit lors de la visualisation des résultats. » Il aurait été intéressant d’avoir accès au contexte de récolte des données pour chacun des cas, aux nombre de répondants, ainsi qu’à la discussion accompagnant la présentation de ces données.

Il est tout de même intéressant de voir, pour une même question, la perception des enseignants et de des étudiants qui converge ou diverge (sans être toutefois assuré que ces enseignants et étudiants se soient croisés durant l’année scolaire).
