Student Voice Focus Groups
Conducting student focus groups is an important component of the Quaglia Student Voice effort in schools, as they allow educators to dig deeper into survey data and better understand students' perspectives. This document outlines a process for conducting focus groups with students in grades 3-12.
Due to their unreliability, QISVA does not use scaled surveys with students in grade 2 or younger. Rather, QISVA encourages schools to conduct focus groups with this population, as they allow younger students an opportunity to share their thoughts on school. This document outlines a process for engaging K-2 students in Quaglia Student Voice focus groups.
After conducting focus groups with students, it is important to determine how to take action together. This resource helps educators and students prepare to partner for these essential next steps.
