The 5Essentials School Effectiveness Survey is a comprehensive, diagnostic tool for identifying schools' strengths and weaknesses. The survey combines validated questions and rigorous analysis to measure a school's performance on the five essential supports of school improvement:
- Effective leaders
- Collaborative teachers
- Involved families
- Supportive environment
- Ambitious instruction
Since each school and district face unique challenges, the level of survey administration, data analysis, and reporting is customized to provide the most relevant performance data for each client. Survey experts lead each client through a consultative process to recommend a survey and data-collection plan suited to their individual needs.
The survey administration period lasts a total of 30 days for each school. School coordinators, appointed by principals, organize students and teachers to take the survey during that time. The survey, conducted entirely online using our Survey Administration Tool, allows us to understand what is happening inside schools and how we can improve instruction and school conditions.
