To register

Me & My School offers:

There are two versions of the Me and My School survey; one designed for students in Years 7 to 10, and a junior version for Years 4 to 6. The survey is easy to administer, completely anonymous, and asks students to report their level of agreement to a series of statements regarding affective, behavioural and cognitive aspects of engagement. It provides:

  • anonymous data through whole school, class, year level, gender, and ethnic filters
  • rich reporting information that tells your school’s story
  • a statistical framework for tracking aspects of engagement over time
  • a separate report showing student engagement with reading

Benefits

  • Starting point for Community of Learning (CoL) Achievement Challenges and school cluster-wide sharing of trends and patterns through ethnic, gender and year level standardised data.
  • The student engagement scale offers both position and tracking of student progress over time.
  • Improved knowledge of how your students behave as learners, whether they like learning and feel they are learning.
