This survey should be used at the beginning of the school year in order to learn more about your students. The parents are often those who know their child best, and these surveys will give you valuable insight right from the start.
Responses to this survey can be compared to the teacher's records in order to plan for differentiation. They are also great for reflection. Beginning of the Year and End of the Year Surveys can be compared and analyzed to gauge how much the child has progressed throughout the school year. This form can also be reviewed prior to parent-teacher conferences.
