5Essentials Survey

Reported by webmaster@ipsd.org on 11/13/17


On Tuesday, Nov 28th, during your 2nd period class, you will be taking the 5Essentials Survey. This survey takes about 25 min and will be taken on your Chromebook. Please come on that day with your Chromebook fully charged.

Dear Parent or Guardian,

Once again this year, middle and high school students across Illinois have the opportunity to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This is the sixth 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 State ID and birthdate 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 the 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 can be found on the Illinois 5Essentials website (https://Illinois.5-essentials.org).

If you do not want your son or daughter to participate, please contact your child's school by November 20, 2017.
