The Panorama Education team works with thousands of districts and schools to measure, understand, and act on student feedback and perspectives with online surveys. Below you can find a list of open-source PDF sample student surveys with research-backed student survey questions to help improve your teaching practice, school climate and supports, equity and inclusion, social-emotional learning competencies, student wellbeing, and distance learning.
1. Student Feedback Survey Template for Teacher Evaluation and Classroom Experience
Capture student voice on classroom experience and teacher feedback
The Panorama student feedback survey covers nineteen key topics related to pedagogical effectiveness, student-teacher relationships, rigorous expectations, school climate, classroom climate, teaching style, and more. Thousands of classroom teachers have used these survey questions as a formative tool, and districts have used them to elevate students' opinions and voices as part of teacher evaluation systems.
2. Student Survey Questions on Supports and Environment
Create an environment where students thrive
School climate, campus safety, and an inclusive school environment impact students' academic success and ability to develop social-emotional competencies in elementary and high school. Educators and administrators use Panorama's student perception survey to build more positive, equitable, and supportive environments for student learning with question types including multiple choice and open-ended questions contained in the form templates.
3. Student Survey Questions on Equity and Inclusion
Elevate student voice to promote equity and achievement
The Panorama Equity and Inclusion Survey instrument—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 feel and think about diversity, equity, and inclusion in school. The survey can help schools and districts track the progress of equity initiatives through the lens of students' experiences, identify areas for celebration and improvement, and signal the importance of equity and inclusion to the community.
4. Student Survey Questions on Social-Emotional Learning Skills and Competencies
Measure and understand each student's SEL competencies
SEL skills are critical to school, career, and life success. Panorama's social-emotional learning assessment supports you to measure and help students develop soft skills with student survey questions measuring growth mindset, self-efficacy, social awareness, and self-management, so you can more effectively build social-emotional learning into your lesson plans and classroom practices.
5. Sample Student Survey Questions on Wellbeing
Support self-care and student wellbeing
By asking students to reflect on their well-being, school districts can gather actionable survey data to understand the student experience and deliver student services and resources focused on self-care, mental health, and social-emotional learning. Panorama's student wellbeing survey questionnaire template can help district administrators, counseling directors, and educators understand students’ positive feelings, negative feelings, and the social support that students receive from and provide to others through their school experience whether during school or school activities/extra-curricular activities.
6. Student Survey Questions on Distance Learning
Take a data-driven approach to remote learning
With the transition from on-campus learning to virtual learning and online classes due to COVID-19 at the end of the year, districts and schools can use Panorama's back-to-school student survey results to incorporate the needs of students, staff, and school community into important aspects of planning quality education for the beginning of the year as well as throughout the 2020-2021 school year. Gather critical information from students on the distance learning experience, well-being, virtual classroom engagement with schoolwork, relationships, student interest, and level of satisfaction with school practices, and overall satisfaction in this evaluation form.
