Panorama Overview

Panorama Education surveys are administered to students grades 3-12 once each semester. Once survey data is collected, district leadership and school officials receive overall reports and averages, not individual student responses to specific questions. The data is intended to help administrators, school counselors, and teachers identify potential barriers to student learning, as well as increase both academic and social/emotional learning competencies for all students.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Panorama student surveys ask grade level appropriate questions designed to capture student voices on their classroom learning experiences, school culture and climate, and ability to manage their emotions. These surveys are important because they are the only district-wide measure Collierville Schools uses to allow students to share their learning experiences and measure bi-annual student progress in character education.

We consider character education to be an integral part of education as it is the process through which all learners acquire and apply the knowledge and skills to manage emotions, develop healthy identities, achieve personal and collective goals, treat others with respect, and make responsible and caring decisions.

Primary classroom teachers fill out staff perception surveys for students’ grade K-2 based on classroom observations. Students grades 3-12 utilize their school issued devices to take the survey under staff supervision during the school day.

All Panorama surveys are considered voluntary. If you would like to opt your student out of a Panorama survey, you can do so on the Microsoft form that is sent one week prior to when students are surveyed via ParentSquare. There is no credit or grade for participating or not participating in the surveys.
