NZCER 3-yearly national survey of primary and intermediate schools running in September
The 3-yearly New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) national survey of primary and intermediate schools will be running again this September. It provides a valuable national picture of what’s happening, and what’s changing over time.
Questionnaires will be sent to principals, board chairs and one other trustee, and a sample of teachers at around 250 English-medium schools. Surveys will also be sent to a sample of parents at each of the same schools.
Please complete a questionnaire if you receive one.
The questionnaires have been developed with feedback from key sector groups, including NZEI Te Riu Roa, NZPF, and NZSTA, who encourage their members to complete them.
More information about the national survey and previous reports are available at: www.nzcer.org.nz/research/national-survey
