About the Equity and Inclusion Survey

Today, educational excellence means creating learning environments where every student feels safe, included, and empowered to achieve. Bringing this vision to life requires hearing from students to better understand the state of equity and inclusion at school.

The Panorama Equity and Inclusion Survey—developed in partnership with the RIDES (Reimagining Integration: Diverse & Equitable Schools) Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education—provides schools and districts with a clear picture of how students are thinking and feeling about diversity, equity, and inclusion in school. The survey can help schools and districts track the progress of equity initiatives through the lens of the student, identify areas for celebration and improvement, and signal the importance of equity and inclusion to the community.

Panorama Equity and Inclusion Survey

Measure student experiences of equity and inclusion in school

By asking students to reflect on their experiences of equity and inclusion in school, education leaders can gather actionable data to understand and improve the racial and cultural climate on campus.

The Panorama Equity and Inclusion Survey exists as a series of scales, or groups of survey questions, that work together to measure a single construct, or topic (e.g., Diversity and Inclusion). We recommend that schools and districts select the topics that align with their strategic priorities or vision for equity.

Any middle or high school community that values diversity, equity, and inclusivity can use this survey. The questions are developmentally appropriate for students in grades 6-12.

Schools and districts may also combine topics on this instrument with related topics from other Panorama survey instruments, such as Teacher-Student Relationships, School Climate, and School Safety.

Diversity and Inclusion

How diverse, integrated, and fair school is for students from different races, ethnicities, or cultures

  1. How often do you spend time at school with students from different races, ethnicities, or cultures?

  2. At your school, how often do students from different races, ethnicities, or cultures hang out with each other?

  3. How fairly do students at your school treat people from different races, ethnicities, or cultures?
