Student Experience Survey

Highlander Institute‘s Student Experience Survey (SES) helps educators understand how students are experiencing learning through five domains: Sociocultural Awareness, Community Building, Academic Mindset, Cognitive Development, and Critical Consciousness. Survey results may be disaggregated by gender, race and ethnicity, lunch status, and learning profile to raise awareness of how different student groups can perceive the same classroom differently based on their lived experiences. Responses help teachers develop immediate action steps to improve the learning experience for specific students, centering student feedback in intervention efforts. Early results show connections between shifts in teacher mindset and behaviors, student growth within survey domains, and student academic growth.
