ECSD Student Survey

2015-16 School Year

The Escambia County School District in collaboration with the local teacher union has developed the ECSD Student Survey to be administered in the Spring of 2016.  The survey will provides students in grades three through twelve an opportunity to give feedback to his/her teacher concerning the learning environment and instruction for this school year.  For the first year, only classroom teachers will administer the ECSD Student Survey to their students.


The ECSD Student Survey expands the district’s effort to listen and learn from the people we serve.  Our district already provides opportunities for parents and employees to give feedback about our system and the services we provide.

This is another intentional effort to move our district’s vision statement from words to reality:

“Create a district where students want to learn, parents want to send their children, teachers want to teach, and employees want to work.” 

Purpose, Design, & General Information

Provide students in grades three through twelve an opportunity to give feedback back about his/her learning environment conditions as well as how effective the teacher was able to provide instruction for the student.


Students are given a voice about their learning experience and teachers can identify strengths and areas to seek professional development to improve student perceptions of the teacher’s instructional effectiveness and the learning culture within the teacher’s classroom.


All survey items measured in the ECSD Student Survey are linked to components within the Danielson’s Framework for Teaching.  Therefore, professional development is already linked and available for teachers who want to improve a specific area of his/her professional practice.



There are three versions of the ECSD Student Survey: 

  1. Elementary (grades 3-5)
  2. Middle Grades (grades 6-8)
  3. High School (grades 9-12)

The survey is administered via a secured Google Form.  The survey will only be available the district wide designed day and will no longer be available at the conclusion of the third period of the said date.


Student will be required to login to the survey, however, the responses are not linked to the user’s id.  The login step is a requirement to ensure that the specific student is only providing feedback to a specific teacher one time.  The responses are not linked to the student’s id, therefore, the responses are completely anonymous.


The survey items are written for students to respond from a multiple choice  format.


The ECSD Student Survey will be administered during the Spring semester of each school.  The survey will be administered in a single day and on the same exact day district wide.  The Survey was designed for students to complete the survey in about twenty minutes.  The survey will be administered during second period.  It will be administered a second time time during third period only for teachers who had a planning period during second period. 



3.5 - 4.0 = Highly Effective
2.5 - 3.49 = Effective
1.5 - 2.49 = Needs Improvement
1.0 - 1.49 = Unsatisfactory

Well-designed student surveys help

teachers improve their practices

Student Perception Surveys and Their Implementation

Research report by

Measure Effective Teaching

In an interview, educational researcher, John Hattie said:

“Start by seeking feedback”

What is your advice to teachers who want to try "visible learning" in their classroom (tomorrow)?

Start by seeking feedback about their impact.

Say: “I am an evaluator of my teaching.

Who has learnt or not, about what, is it efficient, where to next …”

This is an excellent starting point.

And I implore you to read Visible Learning

for teachers which elaborate more on this.
