We are running the national secondary survey now, with results out by the end of 2021.
We’re deeply appreciative to all those who’ve found the time to share their views in NZCER’s 2021 national secondary survey. We know that the current lockdown puts an additional load on schools, parents and whānau.
For anyone who received our email invitations to do the survey, we’re keeping the link open; we’ve found that it takes principals approximately 25 minutes to finish their survey, and teachers around 20 minutes to finish theirs. However, we’re also extending the timeframe so that anyone who cannot complete the survey now will have the opportunity to do so once things return to normal.
We will hold off the parent survey until lockdown levels are back down.
If you want us to re-send you the survey link, or have queries or comments please get in touch by emailing NationalSurvey@nzcer.org.nz
Thanks for all you are doing for this country’s young people, their whānau, and for your staff.
Noho ora mai,
Cathy Wylie and Mohamed Alansari
About NZCER National Survey of Schools
NZCER began regular surveys of primary schools in 1989, focusing on the impact of the educational reforms that began then. In 2003, we added secondary schools. We survey each schooling level every 3 years, and we ask questions of principals, teachers, Board of Trustees
Our national surveys have become significant gauges of what is happening in our schools. They are important sources of information for the teaching profession, the Ministry of Education and other government agencies, and the public. They are funded by Te Pae Tawhiti, NZCER's Government Grant from the Ministry of Education.
NZCER’s 3-yearly national secondary school surveys since 2003 have given principals, their representative organisations, and government agencies timely and useful pictures of what is happening and how schools, principals, and teachers are faring, and what parents think.
