Abstract

In this overview piece, we document the six student perception surveys (SPSs) currently available for state, district, and school consumption and use, given SPSs are increasingly becoming one of the more popular “multiple measures” being used to evaluate teacher qualities. We present descriptive information about each of these SPSs, including information related to cost(s), constructs or domains assessed, number of items, response option types, grade level(s) in which the SPS can be administered, etc. Given this information, we also present implications for practice, as well as calls for future research into each SPS individually and writ large, given SPSs’ increasing popularity post the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), and also given what consumers might need to know before SPS purchase or use.
