The survey process

You can submit questions or ideas for questions to NFER by the specified date for a particular survey. At this stage NFER will draw on the expertise of the Foundation to engage in developing the initial question idea to a final question. We agree final wording with participating organisations before starting to set up the online survey itself.

The surveys are set up in our professional online survey system, Questback. The teacher panel will be sent links to the survey and asked to complete the survey online. They will be able to complete the survey on computer or mobile device (e.g. smart phones/tablets, etc.). Any open-ended questions will be coded during the survey live period by experienced coders.

At the end of the survey period, data will be extracted, cleaned and then analysed to produce results. The results will include a table for each question, including cross tabulations by seniority (and any additional requested cross tabulations) and breakdowns by primary and secondary and seniority. We will also provide description of the sample and a dataset.

We can also provide a written report, at an additional cost if required.
