Education Survey Templates Illustration

There are many groups in the educational system that contribute to the success of that environment. From students to teachers to parents to administrators, you have a lot of components that need to work together to create a supportive, efficient learning atmosphere. Should one group within the school system become dissatisfied or ambivalent, it can create a domino effect that disrupts the entire educational community. So how do you know if your school system is running smoothly? Send out an educational feedback survey to the different groups in your school system and see how well things are going on your campus.

How to Use Our School Questionnaire Samples

At SurveyMonkey, we’ve got lots of ways you can start a conversation with your campus community to gauge mood and effectiveness. Customize a survey of your own, or use one of our methodologist-certified educational survey templates to get you started. Here are a few ideas.

  • Faculty satisfaction. Determine the overall mood of your university’s professors and instructors with a university faculty satisfaction survey. Ask questions like, “How effective is the leadership of your department chair?” and, “How fair is your pay at this university?” to get your faculty’s opinions on leadership, work/life balance, and available resources..
  • Internet and social media safety. Are students acting appropriately and being safe when they use email, Facebook, MySpace, and the Internet in general? We’ve developed several child Internet safety questionnaires for students to determine how, where, and when they use social media. You’ll get answers to questions such as, “How much do your parents know about what you do on the Internet?” and, “When you're on social networking websites (like Facebook, Twitter, or Myspace), about how much of your time do you spend posting things about other people?” For best results, make sure to let the students know these surveys are completely anonymous and secure.
  • Parental involvement. What do parents think about the schools, teachers, community, and even their own ability to contribute effectively to their children’s education? Provide one of our targeted school survey templates focused on the parents, and ask such questions as, “How confident are you in your ability to support your child's learning at home?” and, “How much does a busy schedule prevent you from becoming involved with your child's current school?”
  • Overall climate and mood. Sometimes you just need to know how students, teachers, and parents are generally feeling about the school and community. Give them the opportunity to sound off about subjects like, “Our school shows respect for people from all backgrounds and cultures,” “Students think the school rules are fair,” and, “Teasing and picking on other students is pretty common here.”

3 Tips to Get Started

  1. Keep it short and focused . Make sure each question brings you closer to your goal. Be mindful of survey takers’ time, and word the questions clearly. A good rule of thumb is your survey should take no more than ten minutes to complete.
  2. Remember the audience. You speak to kids differently than you speak to parents and educators. Keep your audience in mind when you’re writing questions, and adjust according to the audience.
  3. Do a test run. Do a pre-test run of your survey to discover awkward wording, incomplete thoughts, faulty skip logic, and to help estimate the amount of time the survey will take a respondent to complete. You might be surprised at what you find.
