What is Panorama?
Panorama is a confidential online survey platform that utilizes strength-based questions and allows districts to analyze feedback data. It allows districts to create student, teacher, staff, parent, and community surveys and to customize stakeholder feedback surveys that align with district priorities.
Why do we use Panorama?
Utilizing Panorama surveys helps to promote a positive school climate by collecting valid and reliable feedback about what matters most — from belonging and teacher-student relationships to engagement and school safety. The surveys allow the district to hear directly from our students and help to create future learning opportunities.
Survey Topics and Logistics
Panorama surveys are given twice a year (Fall and Spring). Each survey is administered within a 2-3 week time period decided by the teacher or building teams to best fit the students' schedules and cause the least amount of disruptions. The surveys consist of approximately 30-40 questions depending on grade level and take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete.
The surveys use a 5 Point Likert Scale and cover the following topics:
- Student Skills and Competencies (Growth Mindset, Social Awareness, Emotional Regulation)
- Well-Being (Supportive Relationships, Positive Feelings, Challenging Feelings)
- Student Supports and Environment (Teacher-Student Relationships, Sense of Belonging, School Safety)
- Equity and Inclusion: Grades 6-12 only (Diversity and Inclusion, Cultural Awareness and Action, Sense of Belonging)
