NZCER provides a range of detailed reporting based on data from the Me and My School survey
Easy to administer and completely anonymous, the survey asks students to report their level of agreement to a series of statements regarding affective, behavioural and cognitive aspects of engagement
Me and My School survey can be administered online or as a paper-based survey form. Once the survey is complete, NZCER provides a range of detailed reporting including norming information
The survey is available for use throughout the whole year, however we encourage schools to use the survey during the third term because the norming information for the survey was taken from national trails carried out during the third term. Other factors may influence students' feelings of engagement at different times of the year.
Price for sitting paper-based surveys: $225.00 registration fee. Schools purchase answer sheets at $2.00 for sets of 10. Scanning of answer sheets is $2.00 per student.
Price for sitting online surveys: $225.00 registration fee. $1.50 per student per survey. (There are no other costs incurred.)
The items in the survey were sourced from national and international research literature or were specially constructed by researchers to address the three different aspects of engagement. Further details regarding the development of the survey can be viewed here.
The Engagement Scale...
A feature of the survey is the underlying measurement scale. Students' responses to the survey can be converted to scale scores that locate the students on a described engagement continuum. Once located on the scale, a group measure of engagement can be compared with national norms, and tracked over time.
