Measure what matters most with the Gallup Student Poll
Discover your school’s levels of engagement, hope, entrepreneurial aspiration, and career and financial literacy.
This post is to let you know of an upcoming webinar to help leaders decide whether this tool is right for their organisation – learn how you can measure what matters most with the Gallup Student Poll.
The Gallup Student Poll is a 20-question survey that measures the level of Engagement, Hope, Entrepreneurial Aspiration and Career & Financial Literacy of students from Year 6 to Year 13. Gallup’s annual survey measures the core elements that drive student success. It provides a viable alternative to the NZCER surveys and taps into aspects of learner agency.
Gallup Education has more than 40 years of data and analytics on what makes exceptional school leaders and teachers. Their research has revealed that the best educators cultivate their students’ strengths, and learn about their hopes and dreams. The Gallup Student Poll helps educators provide a more positive school culture and measures hope for the future, engagement with school, and other factors that have been shown to drive students’ grades, achievement scores, retention and future employment.
How widely used is the Gallup Student Poll?
So far, Gallup has measured nearly 5 million students voices worldwide and provided data on dimensions of student success using this tool. The Gallup Student Poll has these key findings:
- Engaged Students are 2.5x more likely to say that they get excellent achievement than their Actively Disengaged peers.
- Hopeful Students are 2.8x more likely to say that they get excellent achievement than their Discouraged peers.
