SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT SURVEYS sis


These elementary and secondary school survey instruments for students, staff and parents offered here were developed, adapted, and revised by Oregon classroom teachers in the Albany and Ontario school districts. They are not intended for commercial use. There are made available here for free use by educators who want to assemble "quick and dirty" data to support their school improvement decisions and activities. No scoring service is currently available, but a link to a PDF copy of each survey's questionnaire(s) and sample printouts of results is provided. 


Opinion Survey for Students (OSS)

The Opinion Survey for Students (OSS) is for use in grades 6-12. The 48-item survey provides a quick measure of student attitudes and opinions about school climate, discipline/safety, learning environment, staff-student relations, perception of self, and academic progress.

Student Opinion Questionnaire (SOQ)

The Student Opinion Questionnaire (SOQ) is for use in grades 1-8 (but it also has been used in grade 9). The 55-item survey provides a quick measure of student attitudes and opinions about discipline, classroom climate, school climate, learning environment, staff-student relations, perception of self and academic success.


Opinion Survey for Parents (OSP)

The Opinion Survey for Parents (OSP) is for parents of students in grades 6-12. The 20-item survey provides a quick measure of parent attitudes and opinions about school climate, discipline/safety, learning environment, staff-parent relations and academic progress. A home-school consultant for the Ontario (Oregon) School District has translated the OSP into Spanish.

Parent Opinion Questionnaire (POQ)

The Parent Opinion Questionnaire (POQ) is for parents of students in grades 1-8. The 30-item survey provides a quick measure of parent perceptions about discipline, school climate, learning environment, staff-parent relations, student academic progress and student social progress. A home-school consultant for the Ontario (Oregon) School District has translated the POQ into Spanish.


Instructional Quality Survey (IQS)

The Instructional Quality Survey (IQS) is for all certificated, classified and administrative staff. The 72-item survey is an adaptation of one that the RMC Research Corporation (Portland, Oregon) developed under a federal grant to support schoolwide planning. The IQS assesses how well the school stacks up against 13 traits of "effective schools" including program goals and objectives, expectations for students, coordination among programs, parent and community involvement, staff development, leadership, instruction, academic learning time, monitoring student progress, feedback and reinforcement, school and classroom climate, recognizing excellence and using evaluation results.
