The social connections between teachers and students are critical for success inside and outside of the classroom. Over the last year and a half, we’ve collected hundreds of thousands of student survey responses to questions about students’ relationships with their teachers. In this post, we present our first set of findings on teacher-student relationships. This analysis points to patterns in how students’ perceptions of their relationships with their teachers change across grade level, and how some exceptionally strong teachers manage to create and maintain strong bonds with their students.
While students enjoyed summer vacation in Millbury, Massachusetts, district administrators Gregory Myers and Jennifer Bellville reflected on engaging teachers and evaluators around collecting feedback from students last year. Greg and Jenn discuss with Panorama how they worked with the teachers on the district’s Educator Evaluation Committee to make key decisions and to champion the survey project across the district.
As the school year comes to a close, school and district administrators are interested in gathering feedback from their teachers. Today, we are announcing the release of Panorama’s latest survey, the Panorama Teacher Survey, to support the important process of collecting feedback and engaging teachers. To make sure as many schools as possible can gather feedback from teachers at the end of the school year, using Panorama to customize and administer the Panorama Teacher Survey and receive survey reports is entirely free this spring.
