The past couple of weeks have been focused primarily on analyzing our survey results and preparing our final report and presentation.
Looking at our survey results, we’ve realized that we could have improved our surveys by eliminating some our intermediate options like “sometimes,” “maybe,” and “normal.” People who don’t have a strong opinion are very likely to just choose the intermediate, which doesn’t provide us with very much information one way or another. However, we can still pull a lot of interesting information from our survey results with some help from survey pro, Alison Kanny.
The results of our survey for the Wooden staff members demonstrate that there is a need for training regarding the lighting protocol in the racquetball courts as well as in the Pyramid, Blue, and Gold rooms. Most staff members were unaware of the specific protocol and those who said they were aware tended to have conflicting answers.
Our computer use observations reveal that the public computers by Collins Courts are underutilized. Based on this observation data, we’ll most likely recommend that the computers be relocated somewhere else, either within the facility or elsewhere on campus, where they may be better utilized. We are still in the process of analyzing our surveys of gym visitors regarding lighting, TVs, and treadmills.
We’re excited to present our results and see how our results and recommendations impact energy efficiency at Wooden! Maybe in a few years, UCLA students will be able to get a bike work out while powering the lights in the gym (or blending their post-workout smoothie)!
