Dictionary of Data Terms
These surveys collect perceptions-and-opinions data from students, parents, teachers, and administrators. Results are available in multiple ways:
- As an entire set of student/parent/teacher responses for each school, separated by grade level. These downloadable PDFs also include statewide comparisons.
- As a set of administrator responses at the statewide level, combined into groups of LEAs: Urban, Urban Ring, Suburban, and State Operated and Charter LEAs (LEA stands for Local Education Authority, i.e. school district or state-operated or charter school).
- As a set of administrator responses combined into individual LEAs. These downloadable PDFs also include statewide comparisons. These reports are not available for every LEA.
- As individual questions, categorized by topic and available by grade level — elementary, middle, or high — in sortable tables in the relevant areas on the statewide page and each school page. These reports will be available in 2013.
A note on InfoWorks data reporting: To ensure confidentiality, data are not reported for groups with fewer than 10 students, so that no individual student is identifiable. Where this is the case, InfoWorks reports "too few data." Also, "no data" is used to point out instances where data are not available for a particular state, district, or school indicator.
