ESF Diagnostic Survey

Comprehensive survey tools aligned with the ESF, allowing leaders to use the voices of their students, families, and staff in their strategic planning.

ESF Diagnostic Survey: Purpose and Goals

The ESF Diagnostic Survey will serve as a critical component of the overarching ESF Diagnostic Process. The survey will:

Include the critical perspective of key stakeholders (staff, students, families) in the ESF Diagnostic process.

Provide clear and valid data from stakeholder perspectives to support campus reflection on their current practice relative to the 6 Essential Actions.

Make the diagnostic process even more effective by using survey data to signal areas for deeper exploration and analysis.

Preparing for the ESF Diagnostic Survey

This webinar originally aired on October 5, 2020. The purpose of this Panorama webinar is to provide campus survey coordinators with an overview of the diagnostic survey purpose and logistics for the Fall implementation. 

Please feel free to submit any questions you have as you watch the webinar recording and review the slides and resources. We will add answers to these questions to the Q&A document located in the tools and resources section.
