You can create a Survey for just about anything! Many partners use them to gather information related to postsecondary plans, progress on assigned tasks, graduation requirements, or Senior survey state requirements. They can also be fun - favorite summertime activity or food.
How would you like to poll your students? Create a Survey to gather responses and easily track via CSV file. District admins can even recommend/require a student to complete a certain number of Surveys each school year via their progress tracker.
Surveys are available to District, School, and Advisor Admins.
  • District Admins - create a survey available to all students in the district.
  • School Admins - create a survey available to all students in your assigned school.
  • Advisor Admins - create a survey available to all students in your roster (connected via classroom code).
*Note: School + Advisor Admins will not be able to see or manage surveys created at the district level.
