Use the new 2024 updated Australian norms to better interpret how your district/school is trending against national levels

Norms are updated to ensure that the comparison lines used in the Tell Them From Me Survey® appropriately reflect student perceptions as well as capture changing trends in student experiences. We want to ensure that our comparison lines are as timely as possible to facilitate informed decision-making. Since the implementation of the previous norms, there has been continued growth of the Tell Them From Me surveys across Australia. Updating the norms ensures they have greater national representation.

The new norms are based on data collected from student surveys (primary & secondary) administered in 2023.

If you’d like to find out how new norms could impact your school improvement initiatives, please reach out to a member of our team.

Discover how your school is trending in measures of anxiety, sense of belonging, safety, or any other of our primary or secondary school measures to others across Australia.
