What does a “data file” look like for a family survey?

Depending on the type of survey that you’d like families to take (confidential vs. anonymous), a data file can look very different.

  • For anonymous surveys a data file would include: 
    • district
    • school names
    • teacher names (if this is a survey about teachers)
    • family email addresses (if available)
    • mailing addresses (if available)
  • For confidential surveys a data file would include: 
    • district
    • school
    • teacher names (if this is a survey about teachers)
    • student names
    • student IDs
    • student grade level
    • guardian names
    • email addresses (if available)
    • mailing addresses (if available)
