Measure what matters the most

Our measures are developed by internationally renowned education researcher Dr. J. Douglas Willms in collaboration with subject-matter experts.
All measures are based on the latest educational research and are rigorously tested to ensure that they produce reliable and valid results.
The survey is focused on measuring the factors that have been proven to directly affect students’ academic achievement, health and well-being, engagement and attainment.
The survey uses leading indicator metrics that help you take timely action to prevent unwanted outcomes such as drop-out, disengagement or declining well-being before they happen.

Analyze your Results Immediately

OurSCHOOL reporting is available within two days of closing your survey. Our easy-to-use reporting distills results into a handful of critical metrics to focus your planning decisions around.

Simple 1 Click Reports

An executive summary overview of what is going on in your school. A quick glance at each measure makes it easy to spot patterns or anomalies.

Powerful Interactive Charts

These dynamic charts enable you to explore your data in depth. Drill down by grade, sex, Indigenous status, Immigrant status, disability or any other demographic you add to your survey.

Open-Ended Question Reports

A forum for students to express open and honest opinions about their school experience anonymously. A word cloud allows you to discover common themes and sentiments.

Thematic Reports

These reports provide a deep dive into critical areas of school climate such as:

Bullying and School Safety (grades 4 – 12): A safe school environment is critical for students’ learning and well-being. This report presents actionable information regarding the climate of bullying, safety and inclusion in your school.

Student Engagement (grades 4 – 12): Focuses on measuring students’ attitudes towards learning, working with others and participating in all aspects of school life. This report presents a summary of your school’s engagement levels, some key demographic breakdowns and advice about what can be done to positively impact engagement.

High School Completion (grades 6 – 12): All students have a certain probability of completing school which depends on factors such as family background, academic performance, engagement, behaviour, and learning climate. This report uses these factors to help identify cohorts of students at risk of dropping out.

Career Pathways (grades 6 – 12): The process of career planning starts in early childhood and intensifies as students progress through secondary school. This report provides insight into your students’ aspirations and career knowledge and shows you what resources, skills and opportunities they need to help them prepare for their careers.

Rick Hansen Accessibility and Inclusivity (grades 6 – 12): Assesses if all of your students are provided with the same opportunities to learn, grow and play. Helps you gauge your students’ perspectives on whether school is an inclusive and respectful learning environment for all students.

Use Meaningful Comparisons

Put your results in context by viewing them against three different types of benchmarks:

Replica School:
Compare your school against a replica school norm that is based on the results of schools with the same socioeconomic profile as yours. This allows for a true ‘apples to apples’ comparison of where your school stands.

Trend Lines:
One of the most important things that schools can focus on is the change in their results over time. Assess the impact of policy or practice changes through multi-year trend line comparisons.

National and Provincial / State Norms:
Our reports display your results alongside national or provincial/state norms to help you interpret how your district, school or individual grades compare.
