Schools are complicated! We all know the truth in this statement, yet schools are constantly striving for betterment and to enact positive changes based on simple, small-scale, case-study-like data. The School Attitudes Project is investigating the impact of a multi-level, multi-scale model of data informed professional learning to support whole-of-school change.
The project aims to:
- Develop a long-term, longitudinal databank of student, teacher and parental attitudinal measurements towards their experiences of school.
- Begin to understand the impacts of organisational culture and school communication on teacher agency and student success.
- Begin to understand the impacts of organisational change on parental engagement and student success.
- Investigate the scalability and reliability of longitudinal micro-surveying within the context of schools.
- Carry out data-driven analyses and discussions that impact the classroom.
- Participate in meaningful Professional development activities that enhance pedagogical practice.
- Engage in Higher Degree by Research programs (MEd and PhD) to contribute to system wide discussions for educational improvement.
