Surveys

 

In March 2019, HSE Schools began using stakeholder surveys through Panorama Education.

Frequently Asked Questions about Panorama: 

Why use surveys? 

Whether assessing needs, monitoring progress, or evaluating outcomes, one meaningful lens is often the perceptions of our stakeholders. Perception data is commonly collected through interviews, focus groups, and surveys. When the number of stakeholders is large, surveys offer the greatest potential to hear all stakeholder voices.     

Why use Panorama Education; i.e., why not write your own surveys? 

Panorama surveys have been developed through an empirically-based design process that adheres to best practices in the science of survey research. We can be confident that the instruments are valid. In addition, Panorama data is nationally normed, which means we can compare our results with others across the United States. 

Who will be able to see the survey results? 

Aggregate survey results will be available to all groups who took the survey. HSE administrators, faculty and staff will have access to the Panorama platform. Families will have the opportunity to view survey results on the HSE website. Building principals have been tasked with sharing student survey results with the students in their buildings. 

How will the data be used? 

Data gathered through Panorama enables progress monitoring towards school and district Comprehensive Student Success goals. In addition, it serves as a needs analysis – enabling needs-based decision-making on behalf of our students and families.
