Student surveys have the potential to provide students with a voice and provide teachers with valuable feedback. In addition, research has revealed that student surveys have the potential to be a reliable tool in measuring a teacher’s contribution to student learning.
In the 2014-15 school year, New York City will pilot student surveys. These pilots will provide teachers and schools with more time to learn how to most effectively implement student surveys as a component of a teacher evaluation and development system. Please note that student surveys will only be used for non-evaluative purposes during the 2014–15 school year.
