Raise engagement. Raise hope. Raise achievement.
The Hope Survey
The Hope Survey is designed to give schools a comprehensive tool that assesses the school climate and culture from the students' viewpoint. It can pinpoint strengths as well as areas for improvement. The results from the Hope Survey inform staff and administrators with quantitative data to help design proactive plans to improve school practices and procedures in order to enhance and enrich the school climate, culture and the student experience. Schools can implement and manage school-wide continuous improvement in a way that directly benefits the students with a tool backed by multiple sources of research.
The survey itself is easy to use and the data collected informs practical strategies to build a positive school culture. New students take the survey when they first arrive to establish a baseline, then every spring all the students take the Hope Survey until they graduate. As a school builds their school culture, we find that students with higher hope scores set more challenging goals, believe they can achieve their goals, and have a higher chance of graduation from college. When you have hopeful and engaged students, you raise achievement. The Hope Survey is the only comprehensive tool that addresses the constructs of Hope, Engagement, Academic Press, Goal Orientation, Autonomy and Belongingness with focused strategies and coaching to help educators effectively apply the data.
How will my school and students benefit from the Hope Survey?
Is your school a positive, stage-fit environment for preadolescents, or adolescents? How do you know?
Is your school providing the critical elements needed for maximizing student learning? Are your learning environments and overall culture setting the conditions for student success?
Reliable and valid student perception surveys answer those questions. Surveys can be administered via the web and take only 20-30 minutes of your students’ time. The surveys provide a school climate profile analysis that may be tailored to professional development goals.
The surveys have been proven to correlate with each other; for example, higher levels of autonomy lead to higher engagement; higher engagement leads to higher hope. Creating environments that allow for good relationships, relevant learning experiences, and rigorous assessment will create passionate, self-motivated, lifelong learners
