Assistant teacher program/School surveys
School surveys[edit | edit source]
Pupils can conduct school surveys in cooperation with their teachers and/or student councils and youth councils. A school survey should have the goal to gather information on a specific topic, usually something the pupils would like to see addressed by their teachers.
Example survey: Learning motivation[edit | edit source]
Possible choices for measurements are, for instance:
- How does the learning motivation of pupils
- develop on a single day?
- vary between grades?
- vary between subjects?
- vary between personal perspective and perception of others (e.g. the class)?
- vary between good and less good pupils?
An objective measurement of something as subjective as learning motivation is hardly possible but one can try to reduce subjectivity.
The survey should be collected with anonymization. Collecting several answers with different biases also allows to select subsets of data for more detailed analysis. An anonymization software can allow to attach actual grades from a database while removing the names of the interviewees. Alternatively the survey can be collected by the mentors of the interviewees, allowing the mentors to analyze the information with respect to their protégés and to perform the anonymization.
A mathematics or computer science teacher can use the opportunity to introduce the R programming language, which is likely to solve at least any motivational problems of the pupils to learn about the programming language.
