Students Weigh In: Learning & Well-Being During COVID-19 is a free national student survey that invites students in grades 6-12 to share about their unique experiences with learning while their school sites have been closed.
The online anonymous survey takes 10 to 15-minutes to complete, and students can toggle between English and Spanish throughout. The survey measures various dimensions of students’ academic and social-emotional learning, including:
- Engagement & Belonging
- Academic Challenge & Obstacles to Learning
- Logistics of Schooling
- Health and Well-Being
The anonymous responses will be aggregated into a publicly available online-interactive report shortly after the survey closes to help adults pivot their approaches to schooling and target resources where they are needed most.
In this moment of rapid response and significant change in students’ experiences of school and learning, there is little data available about how the pandemic is affecting the lived experiences of students. While there are many surveys for parents and school leaders about how school closures are affecting education, the student perspective is far too absent. This national effort is designed to specifically hear from the 50 million students whose schools have closed.
