"The survey itself was very informative and educational for our staff."
"It helped tremendously with staff buy-in to multicultural education."
"It is affecting everything we’re doing in a more conscious way."
"Just doing this survey has already made positive changes in our school."
Once collected, the data can be tabulated and analyzed by the school or district, and if desired, disaggregated by ethnicity, sex, language or other variables.
In addition, the open-ended responses should be grouped by common themes, summarized, and a final report prepared. Survey results can be shared with participating schools and used to highlight successes and identify areas for improvement.
The Survey was originally developed as part of a three-year research study to determine the effectiveness of a diversity program at selected middle schools. It can easily be adapted for high school and college levels as well.
The survey can be employed as a one-time “temperature check.” It can
also be utilized to measure change by conducting a baseline study prior to
the implementation of the UnityWorks or other multicultural program, with follow-up studies at the end of years 1, 2 and 3.
The package includes staff and student questionnaires, sample cover letters, instructions for administering the surveys, focus group questions, parent interview questions in English and Spanish, and an example of survey results. Answer sheets are not included.
The staff survey has 77 questions on a 5-point Likert scale, plus three open-ended questions, and takes about 40 minutes to complete. The student survey has 31 questions plus several open-ended ones, and takes about 20 minutes to complete.
The survey questions
may be modified
to suit local needs.
This ready-made Survey is designed for use by state departments of education, school districts colleges and local schools. It focuses on multicultural attitudes and practices, with questions about school culture, curriculum, instruction, classroom materials, after-school activities and parent involvement, as well as student-student and student-teacher interactions.
