Each year, the Directorate surveys all parents/carers, school staff and students in Years 4 to 12 about their satisfaction with public education. The 2020 surveys will be available online from 10 to 31 August.
I am writing to ask for your help by allowing your child/ren to participate in the student survey.
Why are we doing the survey?
The data are used to inform government policy and underpin school improvement practices. The results will also help us to identify what we do well as a school and where we can improve.
What is involved?
The student survey is administered as a classroom task and takes 15-20 minutes to complete. In addition to items developed to measure satisfaction, the survey includes a school climate module that forms part of a longitudinal study being conducted in partnership with researchers at the Australian National University (ANU).
Key elements of school climate include school identification (a sense of belonging and connection to school), academic emphasis (support and encouragement of learning and success), relationships (feeling valued and respected in dealings with others) and a sense of shared mission, rules and processes in the school, which are important indicators of educational outcomes and quality of the learning environment.
How will privacy be managed?
At the start of the survey, student identification numbers will be used to confirm the identity of students and enable survey responses to be linked over time and with administrative and performance data. Linking data in this way will help researchers to assess relationships between improvements in school climate and educational outcomes and enable a better understanding of patterns over time.
What do I do now?
If, after reading this, you do not want your child to do the survey, please contact the front office by Friday 9 August so that your child can be excluded.
