Pulse on Connections Student Survey

We know that meaningful relationships are the foundation for student well-being and engagement with learning – no matter where the learning is happening. Pulse on Connections is a 10-15 minute online survey for middle and high school students to get a pulse on how connected students feel to one another and to the adults in their school community during this unique time.

Explore sample questions here. We have adapted questions and scales used in the Challenge Success-Stanford Surveys of School Experiences. We can provide the full set of questions upon request.
