The Challenge of Using Survey Data to Help Determine Elementary School Policies
Landrum, R. Eric.; Taki, Racheal R.; Bushee, Lora L.
Online Submission
To help determine elementary school policies, we surveyed elementary school children, staff members, and parents about various aspects of an elementary school?s spirit and pride program with input from 185 1st-3rd graders, 215 4th-6th graders, 308 parents, and 39 staff members. A 15-item survey was designed, with slight modifications as they pertained to each group. The results were extremely unusual in that for each and every item, significant differences emerged for the pattern of responding by the four groups. This pattern of results from the four constituent groups highlights the challenges in using survey data. (Contains 1 table.)
