Measure Briefing Notes
Using a multi-dimensional approach, the OurSCHOOL Survey measures provide valid and reliable data on a variety of concepts including student engagement, emotional health, nutrition and physical fitness, and risky behaviors (secondary survey). The OurSCHOOL Survey enables schools to continuously monitor various indicators that can be used to help assess the effects of school reform and guide both school policy and practice. The OurSCHOOL Survey can also be used to assess changes in performance across schools and districts over time, identify issues relevant to particular students or groups of students, and increase student engagement in learning. In addition, it can be used to engage and involve parents.
