5Essentials Survey-Student Permission

Reported by on 11/7/18

Students in grades fourth through twelve across Illinois have the opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey starting mid-November. This is the seventh year the Illinois State Board of Education will implement this survey across the state. This survey is based on 20 years of research at the University of Chicago. It asks students about their experiences in school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.

Student participants will be required to log-in using their student ID and birth date in order to complete the survey. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn course material.

Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right to review a copy of the questions asked of your student(s). Survey questions will be posted soon on the Illinois 5Essentials website at

If you do not want your son or daughter to participate, please contact your child’s school by November 15, 2018.
