As a school district, we utilize formative and summative academic data to identify the needs of our students, our schools, our grade levels/departments, and our overall district. Identifying these needs in the short term allows us to take action and provide the necessary supports and interventions for our students in the moment, when they need it. Analyzing data trends over time helps us to identify to where to allocate our financial and human resources to support instructional and curriculum practices over the long-term.
The same is true for the non-academic needs of our students as well. We use this information to better understand our students more holistically to ensure that we provide an environment within our schools in which students are mentally and emotionally available to learn.
An important way of getting that non-academic data is through student surveys. We ask our students to participate in a survey about their experiences at school to provide invaluable insights on how we can improve and adapt our district to their needs. The survey questions ask students to self-reflect on emotional regulation, self-efficacy, and self-management.
