The pilot programme did not make use of a survey tool as the primary focus was on refining the Standards & Indicators. Several of the pilot schools mentioned that the surveys would have been useful in helping them identify focus areas and add credibility to their process.

During October 2022, together with members of the ISASA Working Committee, a set of Stakeholder Opinion Surveys was designed for schools to collect data as part of their self-study preparation. These surveys are sent to all staff, the board, students and parents, at least six weeks ahead of the school visit.

The data is processed by OISESA and shared with schools, in graphic format as well as in an Excel spreadsheet.

Copies of the survey questions can be found in the Guidelines for Schools.
