Reporting Data by Groups
Student's responses to Pulses (surveys) are what we call confidential. This means that we don't share who individually responded to what (For example, we wouldn't share if Baxter responded to "Do you like your teacher" with "No"), so we can create a safe space for your staff, students, and parens to respond honestly. However, because we pull information from your Student Information System (SIS) and tie it back to the users, we are able to report the data by different groups. E.g. You could see the school climate data for your entire organization, specific schools, disaggregated by different courses/teachers, or even by significant sub-groups like gender, race/ethnicity, English Learner status, etc. This is done so you can hone in on outliers and trends in the data and be more targeted with your interventions and efforts to make improvements.
Below are just two example use cases that showcase why the group-level data can be significant:
- Our female student population is especially struggling with a bullying problem, so we spend the next month working with that broader group of students to intervene.
- Our English Learner students don't believe their families' are involved enough in school activities, so we ramp up our efforts to include these families by hosting a monthly "family update" with translation services.
