A key goal within the College’s School Improvement Plan is to ‘Build a performance and development culture’. During Term 1, students have contributed to a student voice data source named Pivot Student Surveys.
The student surveys are intended to provide teachers with constructive and actionable research-based feedback on the next steps that can be taken as a direct result of student responses. This models to students that we all have areas of strength and areas to improve upon.
Additionally, the surveys provide an opportunity to further enhance teaching practice, directly linking to standards within the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
Student survey responses are anonymous and class results are confidential and only accessible to the class teacher. Aggregated data for the College, learning areas and year levels also becomes de-identified for further analysis and actionable guidance.
