Shelley Carlton, SLMC at Tyro Middle, was inspired by an article from Knowledge Quest to develop a survey for students to gather feedback to assist in strategic planning for next school year. Using data to assess the needs of the school community meets Standard 2 of the evaluation instrument:
"I have created a Student Survey using a Google form and am going to have a random sampling of students take it during their last class visit to the library in the upcoming weeks. (I have put a link on the Media page that is easily accessible.)
I am particularly interested in finding out if students have enough opportunities to visit the library and also in finding out if they are using some of the things we have available....makerspace activities, magazines, book mobile etc...so that was the focus. The survey is very much geared toward what we want to know about the TMS library from a student perspective. The results will automatically go into a response speadsheet and data can then be analyzed.
We are excited about using this tool as a means to make improvements to our library.
Below are links to an article on this topic and the survey. Thanks!"
