Scotch College, Adelaide
The Pivot survey was easy to administer and allowed students a voice. This voice was carefully considered by staff and leadership. Actions taken from the PIVOT results have had a positive impact within our school and as a result students have benefitted.
We asked some of our school Principals what the students themselves thought and were delighted to discover that over 90% found their students were very receptive to having their say on their teachers’ effectiveness.
Comments we received included:
“Our students complete a lot of surveys. The comments from our students from our students when completing the Pivot survey was extremely positive. I think the format and the clear and concise questions contributed to this.”
“Student voice and empowerment are part of our AIP [Annual Implementation Plan] goals, and the students were familiar with opportunities to provide feedback to staff. They responded well to this digital survey and found it easy to use.”
“We have been using Survey Monkey to question students on key strategic teaching and learning focus areas. Students made positive comments after completing this survey, in general suggesting that this survey was “heaps better”.
