Protecting Survey Taker Anonymity

Whenever results are reported for a small number of survey-takers, there is a chance that the anonymity of that population may be compromised. In the interest of ensuring survey-takers’ anonymity, The Learning Bar’s reporting tools will automatically suppress data for populations that do not meet a minimum size.

For student surveys, the minimum reportable population size within the one-click reports and interactive charts is five or more students. The open-ended question report requires ten or more responses in order to show a result. For the district one-click reports, there must be data from fifty or more students across two or more schools in order to report a district aggregate. To generate a district-level roll-up interactive chart, there must be ten or more students.

For teacher surveys, the minimum reportable population size within the one-click report is five or more teachers. The open-ended question responses require ten or more teachers to respond in order to report. For the district-level aggregate teacher report, there must be data collected from five or more schools in order to produce a district report. 

For parent surveys, the minimum reportable population size within the one-click report is five or more parents. The open-ended question responses require five or more parents to respond in order to report. For the district-level aggregate parent report, there must be data collected from five or more schools in order to produce a district report.
