Sample District Schools Student Survey

Dear Sample District Schools Student:

This survey is part of your school district’s effort to evaluate how computers, networks, and other technology devices are currently being used in your school. In addition to your responses, we will also be collecting data from teachers, administrators, and parents. We have already observed classes in your school and the other schools in the district.

Data from this survey will be analyzed in aggregate to create an overall picture of technology use in Sample District Schools for the purposes of technology planning. Individual responses will not be tracked; therefore, all of your responses will be anonymous.

The survey contains 5 items that require either a selected response or an open-ended response. In the survey, you will be asked to reflect on your use of technology to create original works and products, collaborate with other students and the teacher, solve problems as a team, and to gather information/research. We anticipate that the survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. There is no option to save and return to edit; so completion in a single sitting will be necessary.

Thank you in advance for your time!
