Interactive Graphic: Panorama Student Survey

How to use the graphic:
Click and drag your mouse over a topic’s y-axis to select a range of student survey results. For instance, select the range from 60-100% on the Pedagogical Effectiveness scale. You will see how students who responded in this range also responded across the other classroom scales on the Panorama Student Survey. As you will notice, when students respond favorably towards their teacher’s instructional methods, they may also respond more favorably on Expectations and Rigor, but less favorably on the Classroom Environment and Student Engagement scales. You can rearrange the topics by dragging each y-axis to a new position.

What is the graphic showing?
This interactive graphic is intended to illustrate how each scale on the Panorama Student Survey correlates to others. In simple terms, it helps to answer: “When students respond this way on one survey topic, how do they respond on other topics?” Our analysis shows that the survey instrument adequately measures key aspects of teaching and learning independently from one another. These measures provide educators with differentiated feedback that can be used to understand student perceptions in the classroom, school, or district.

What data have we included in this analysis?
Each point on the coordinate plot represents classroom-level survey results from a representative sample of 229,674 student responses across a range of diverse school districts. To ensure the anonymity and representativeness of the data, we employed several sampling methods.
