Students' Experiences of Their First Two Years at Albany Senior High
Hipkins, Rosemary
New Zealand Council for Educational Research
This report documents findings from comprehensive end-of-year student surveys conducted by Albany Senior High School (ASHS) at the end of 2009 and 2010, its first two years of existence as a newly built senior secondary high school. The New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) was given access to the collated survey data for the authors' own research purposes. In return they provided more detailed statistical analysis than the school had themselves undertaken at the time. Overall, the authors can say that the majority of students coming in to the school do recognise and seem to value the various opportunities to learn that are being offered to them. Given their considerable efforts to work on their pedagogy (Hipkins, 2011), this should be encouraging for the school's teachers. (Contains 4 tables and 11 figures.) [This paper was written with Edith Hodgen and Rachel Dingle.]
