SurveyWorks’ Student Perception Survey
What Parents Need to Know
This year we are again administering a SurveyWorks student perception survey. The questions in the survey will ask your child to give his/her thoughts about his/her teacher and learning experiences. The goal is for teachers to use student survey results to become even better teachers.
What this means for your child and other students
Your child should know that his/her voice and classroom experiences matter. The student survey is a way for your child to communicate his/her thoughts to teachers without any negative consequences. The survey results will be anonymous. Teachers will not receive student names with their survey results.
What this means to you as a parent
We know that having a great teacher is the most important school-based factor in your child’s success. The student survey is one of many tools our school district can use to provide teachers with feedback to help them improve. Schools will be stronger and your child’s teachers will be better. Ultimately, your child’s learning will improve, too.
What this means for teachers and schools
The purpose of a Student Perception Survey is to provide educators with more feedback about how they can improve in order to increase student learning. Common practice in teacher evaluation is for principals to observe a teacher instructing a lesson and to provide her/him with feedback on strengths and weaknesses. While this principal feedback helps teachers improve their instruction, teachers can improve even more when given information from students who are in their classrooms every day.
The surveys are not designed to measure whether students like or dislike their teacher. Rather, the focus is on how teachers and the classroom environment help students learn.
