Evaluation of student survey trial published

October 2014

ARTD’s formative evaluation of the Tell Them From Me student survey trial is now available on the NSW Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation website. The survey provides schools with an annual snapshot of their students’ self-reported social and intellectual engagement at school, which can inform annual strategic planning. The Department can also use the data to explore how student engagement and wellbeing is linked to performance.

The evaluation drew on a survey of school principals and staff responsible for implementing the student survey interviews with the principals, survey coordinators, teachers and a sample of junior and senior students from five schools.
