Daily Experience Sampling For Schools™

 

Methodology

BETTER DATA ON THE WHAT’S REALLY HAPPENING IN YOUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY.

Rather than rely on typical questionnaires, we combine mobile technology with cutting edge research methods to gather accurate information over time, a little bit each day.

 

It’s called experience sampling or “ecological momentary assessment” (EMA) and it’s one of the most promising data collection techniques to come out of academic research in the past 20 years. Instead of asking broad questions like “How much of a problem is bullying at your school?”, we ask about one specific experience at a time (“Did you see someone being bullied at school today?”)

 

Send questions like this to all of your students over a week or month and you get powerful “snapshots” from students in the daily school setting, with experiences still fresh in their minds.

 


 

Technology

WORKS ON ANY DEVICE.

 

iNoted syncs across laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Have your students login with a unique access code to ensure anonymity and the rest is taken care of. If you don’t allow phones in school, not to worry. Students can answer questions during free periods on a laptop or tablet or just have their questions waiting for them at the end of the day on their phones.

 

iNoted works on all major desktop and mobile platforms, including Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer web browsers as well as iOS, Android and Windows smartphones.

 

 


 

Modules

ITEMS BASED ON VALIDATED SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH.

For each module, we scour the academic research to understand the latest thinking in the field. We then develop a comprehensive pool of questions that asks about relevant behaviors, experiences and attitudes. Only questions with the best psychometric properties from multiple research studies make the cut.

 

Want to measure compassion? We’ll ask a student if he or she got annoyed with another classmate that day or if a student comforted someone who was sad. Teamwork and Collaboration? We send questions about whether a student delegated tasks effectively that day or had trouble seeing another person’s point of view.

 


 

 Reports

COMPREHENSIVE GRAPHS AND TABLES SHOWING DATA OVER TIME.

Our reports have been carefully designed to illuminate how things change over time in your school population. iNoted randomizes the question-asking process each day, sending different questions to different students about many different aspects of a domain you’re interested in. This provides a comprehensive “snapshot” of what went on that day throughout your student body. If all this sounds complicated, don’t worry. All of it is presented graphically in easy-to-read diagrams in our reports.
