Presentation from AEA 2011. Abstract: Survey data collection is routinely used to solicit information from stakeholders. This session will share the process findings from a non-government mandated student survey at four school jurisdictions. Since data collection approaches were determined by the jurisdictions, different survey media (paper and online) were used and different levels of facilitation for data collection were received. The school jurisdictions chose paper medium had a good response rate, as did the school jurisdiction provided in-kind support to facilitate online survey data collection at the schools. One school jurisdiction chose the online medium and was not able to provide in-kind support, which resulted in poor response rate and data quality. The findings suggested that support from school stakeholders to facilitate survey data collection was the key factor for good response rate and data quality, not survey media. The session will outline future directions and ideas for student survey data collection.
