Data Collection Tools
To gauge our progress, we collected data at the beginning and end of our project using the following tools. Fore more information, read Chapter V: Pre-Project Data: Setting a Course for Community.
The survey attempts to measure student attitudes towards six key principles of classroom communities: inclusivity, participation, cooperation, diversity, agency, and co-creation. (To see which principles align with which questions, see Appendix C.) To offer greater insight into students’ perspectives and experiences, the questions are divided into two sets: eight personal questions and nine general questions.
These interview questions ask students to reflect on their strengths, growth areas, the learning process, and peer support.
