End of year class survey.

Well, it’s been a lovely summer holiday so far here in New Zealand but the sun isn’t shining all that much today, so it’s a good day to get back into the swing of things. As I’m sure all teachers do, I have been relishing the long break we are lucky enough to get whilst also  keeping school in the back of my mind. I’ve been reflecting on how last year went and I’m pleased with the progress the students made in a year. They came an awfully long way in a relatively short amount of time and I think they are well prepared to be life long learners and really thrive in the rest of their formal and informal education.

But I wouldn’t expect you to just take my word for it. I asked the class to complete a really lengthy survey at the end of the year and have just finished compiling the results. Take a look – Room 3 End of Year Survey 2012.

  1. I love your idea of getting the kids to do a class survey at the end of the year. What a graphic way of seeing how your efforts are impacting on your students!

  2. This is a cool way to evaluate learners progress, assess your own practice and drive both even further.
    Will you still have some of the same kids this year? It would be interesting to know their spin on it, what they would do next…
    Student voice is such a powerful tool!
    It is great to see the movement these learners have made in the key areas you have identified. If their 2013 teachers build on these skills…imagine how far many of these learners will go…

    1. Thanks Kris. Yes, I was really pleased to see the results and they have given me plenty of food for thought too. I have a survey ready to go for the beginning of this year as well, so I can compare students’ thoughts at the end of 2013. I won’t have the same students next year, as I teach the last year of primary school so they’ll all be off at intermediate next year, hopefully continuing to flourish.
