Which Student Survey Tool is Right for my School?

Reviwed by Cleo Westhorpe, Co-founder of Pivot and Teacher

Pivot offers two powerful survey tools designed to empower school leaders and teachers with evidence-based decision-making: the Student Survey on Teaching and the Wellbeing for Learning Survey.


Find out which Pivot student survey tool is the right fit for your school - you may discover the combined power of both survey instruments is exactly what you need to support the learning and wellbeing of your students.


“We want to track the impact of teaching practice and student engagement in the classroom”


Your school is looking to:

  • Gather meaningful feedback on students' learning experience

  • Deeply understand student learning experiences and collaborate with students to co-design future learning

  • Empower educators to teach with greater impact

  • Use Pivot insights to develop instructional strategies and frameworks for school improvement


The Student Survey on Teaching is the right survey tool for your school.


Pivot survey instruments are based on best-practice research and are aligned to global teaching frameworks such as the AITSL Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, the Danielson Framework, and the International Baccalaureate. Surveys are designed to be delivered in cycles throughout the school year, providing teachers and leaders with evidence-based, timely insight into students' learning experience at regular intervals.


The survey is customisable to allow schools to include additional domains of focus or questions that provide a deeper understanding of their student's experiences. Reports are supported with resources and guides for next-day action and ongoing impact.

“We want to measure, track and support the wellbeing of our school community”


Your school is looking to:

  • Obtain a ‘pre-intervention’ or moment-in-time assessment of student wellbeing across all student cohorts

  • Identify ‘at risk’ students and connect them with help

  • Gain insights into the most critical components of student wellbeing to inform a School Wellbeing Plan

  • Activate student voices to build a positive and inclusive learning culture


Wellbeing for Learning is the right survey tool for your school.


Based on best-practice research, the survey measures student wellbeing factors influencing student’s readiness and ability to learn while they are at school. Pivot’s Wellbeing for Learning survey is aligned with many international frameworks, including the Australian Student Wellbeing Framework, NEST and the PISA Wellbeing Framework. and the 1 min weekly check-ins are designed for students at three levels (foundation or lower primary, upper primary, secondary).


We’ve built in an integrated student support mechanism that allows students to let their teacher know when they need support, and provides teachers and leaders with access to immediate data insights and evidence-based resources for next-day action.


Our program includes access to Pivot Data Coaches and we have also partnered with several education experts to deliver exceptional support and empower your people with data-driven insights through Professional Learning Services. These additional supports will help to maximise the impact of your survey package.
