The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) believes that our schools become stronger when we listen to our students. This year, students will be invited to participate in the Panorama Education Student Perception Survey, a research-based, confidential student survey used across the country to provide teachers with students’ feedback about their classroom experiences.
Students in grades 6-12 will be invited to participate in the 2022 Student Perception Survey. The survey can be completed in 30 minutes or less. The survey administration window is from December 6, 2021 to January 21, 2022.
Since the survey is being administered digitally this year with no option for paper administration, we ask that students who have a wifi-enabled device (i.e. tablet, laptop, smartphone, etc.) that they are able to bring to school, to please do so on the date of their survey only on the date that their teacher lets them know the survey will be administered. We do not mandate that they bring devices to class generally, but appreciate the facilitation of this digital survey.
Questions on the survey ask how your child is experiencing their classes, such as how supported your child feels by their teacher, and whether they find lessons engaging. If you would like to view the items on the survey, please visit www.StudentPerceptionSurvey.nyc where you can view the 2022 Student Perception Survey.
All student survey responses are kept completely confidential, which means no one in the school will know how your child responded. Students are not asked to type in their names or ID numbers on the survey. The reports that teachers receive will not show the individual responses from any student, so you and your child can be confident that their responses will remain private.
The survey is voluntary. Families can opt out of participating in the survey by contacting Ms. Ingram (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ms. Prabhu (email@example.com) or simply letting their child know not to take the survey as students may opt out of participating in the survey at the time it is administered even if parents do not follow the above steps in time. Additionally, if students do not feel comfortable answering a particular question, they may also skip any question on the survey they do not wish to answer.
