VALID Survey

This report displays the results of VALID student survey in conjunction with the VALID results.

How will this report benefit me?

This report will help school-based leadership team executives understand how student’s attitude to science and the VALID assessment contribute to their result.

What does the report provide?

This two-page report presents information on:

Chart (Page 1) – Survey - About

VALID Survey responses to 2 survey sections:

  • About science
  • About the test and science lessons

Average scores are in the format of a score between -2 and 2. The graph shows the indexed agreement or disagreement with each statement. For example to achieve a value of +2, all students would strongly disagree with the statement. For -1, students, on average, disagree with the statement. A value of 0 shows a balance of agreement and disagreement.
Reponses are graphed on a cluster bar chart representing School Average, State and SSSG.

Chart (Page 2) – Survey - Other

VALID Survey responses to 4 other survey sections:

  • My three favourite school subjects are
  • The three school subjects I think I learn most in
  • Which part of the test did you like best?
  • Why did you like this part?

Responses are in the percentage of students who selected each option in that survey section.

Reponses are graphed on a cluster bar chart representing School Average, State and SSSG.

Use the slicers to select a cohort and filter the data for further analysis:

  • Directorate, Network, School

How can I use the report to support teaching and learning at my school?

Identify any difference in attitudes and experiences of students by their level achieved. Consider areas for improvements such as refining classroom environment, student and teachers expectations or teaching methods.

What should I look for?

  • Identify patterns in high performing students and their experience and attitudes towards science, schools and test. Compare to patterns with students who may need further assistance.
  • Pay particular attention to responses that have extreme results (-2 or 2 and high percentage responses).
