REL Northeast & Islands, in partnership with the Northeast College and Career Readiness Research Alliance, developed this survey and accompanying guide to help high schools and districts collect data on student experiences with competency-based learning. Policymakers and practitioners need this information to improve implementation and communication with students.
REL Northeast & Islands has created a series of three complementary guides that provide an overview of the survey research process designed for educators. The guides address survey development, sampling respondents, survey administration, and analysis and reporting of survey data.
This template allows researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to create and share a Discussion Tree to generalize findings from a single research study to their own context. Download the tool and customize the bracketed text for the appropriate state, district, or school context.
