MEASURE SELECTION - Ensure that your survey is precisely targeted to gather the data that best supports your unique goals. A well-aligned survey allows you to set baselines, monitor your impact on student outcomes, target interventions, and focus your time and resources on what matters the most.

We can offer advice on question design best practices, provide feedback on your custom questions, review your data to find areas that could be further investigated with additional questions, and provide guidance on using your custom questions to explore equity in your district and schools.

DATA INTERPRETATION – Interpret and share your survey findings among your school community with confidence. If you’re looking for assistance, clarification, or just want a sounding board for how to think about your results, our Research and Engagement Teams are standing by to help.

Engagement Sessions

Based on widespread demand, we are pleased to offer a range of engagement sessions. These sessions are designed to build your staff’s expertise in the areas of data-driven planning and decision making, and to discuss and share practical strategies for fostering a school climate where all students can succeed.

“The Engagement Team supported school leaders in meeting the parallel goals of facilitating skill in using data captured by the survey and in creating the imagination for school leaders to narrow the focus and effectively respond to challenges highlighted in the data.”
