We know that teachers care about their students and improving their instructional practice. Often, the data available to improve instructional practice does not include direct feedback from students. This past spring, the New York City Department of Education (DOE) partnered with Panorama Education to offer the Student Perception Survey, a research-based, confidential student survey used across the country to provide teachers with students’ feedback about their classroom experiences.
The 2016 Student Perception Survey was administered for formative purposes only, and not as a part of Advance, New York City’s system for teacher development and evaluation.
This 2016 survey measured students' perceptions on teaching and learning in a particular class by asking a range of questions that focused on the following five scales:
- Pedagogical Effectiveness
- Classroom Climate
- Classroom Rigorous Expectations
- Classroom Engagement
- Classroom Teacher-Student Relationships.
