Monthly School Survey Dashboard

The School Survey Dashboard provides insights into learning opportunities offered by schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. The survey will contribute to IES's response to the Executive Order on Supporting the Reopening and Continuing Operation of Schools and Early Childhood Education Providers. Results from this new pilot survey will also be available for analyzing the 2022 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) data—contributing additional contextual factors for understanding educational outcomes of the nation's fourth- and eighth-grade students. The survey is scheduled to collect data five times, once a month from February through June of 2021. See more information about the sample and how to interpret results.

Data (including participation rates, percentage estimates, and standard errors) are available for download for grade 4, grade 8, and for grades 4 and 8 combined.

On the dashboard, you will find answers to the following questions:

  1. To what degree did schools offer remote only, hybrid, or full-time in-person instruction at the time of data collection (February 22 - March 12)?
  2. What was the proportion of students overall and by various student groups enrolled in each instructional mode in January?
  3. What type of hybrid model was offered in January?
  4. On average, how many days were students offered in-person instruction under the hybrid instructional mode in January?
  5. How many hours of synchronous (i.e., live) instruction did students receive on average daily under the remote learning mode in January?
  6. Which student groups received priority for in-person instruction in January?
