2018-2019 Teacher Report Card Results

I thought about not posting because everyone will see and I didn’t think the results were great but then I realized how helpful it is for me in my reflection. Now that I’ve really looked the results over thoroughly, I realize it’s not as bad as I thought. In all my Likert scale questions, my scores decreased from last year. But not drastic. There were some scores and comments that stung and then some that made me realize that my students didn’t all hate everything as much as some of them made it seem…a reflection on the year post is to follow with more goals for next year. But for now, the survey…

Here’s the survey I used (it will force you to make a copy if you want to see it): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/16Ds-SMJdN1hIRkt4P7LbuoQEOsEiVvKFfHNjIeJJMT0/copy?usp=sharing. It was modeled after Matt Vaudrey’s Teacher Report Card and others that I’ve seen over the years and adapted from my previous ones.

I had 96 out of 125 students respond. I posted the survey in Google Classroom in the last week of school while we were studying for finals and gave about 20 minutes in class to do it one day, but it took most students about 10-15 minutes and they said it was very long. This is a mix of my one Honors Geometry class and my four Algebra I classes. It is mostly freshmen.

I think that Mrs. Grayson:

  • Respects each student: 4.71
  • Tries to understand her students: 4.35
  • Does a good job of treating all students how they deserve to be treated: 4.57
  • Explains topics clearly: 3.64
  • Seems to enjoy teaching: 4.41
  • Shows interest in students’ lives: 3.83
  • Makes me feel important: 3.80
  • Keeps the class under control without being too tough: 3.95
  • Would always answer my questions if I had any: 4.36
  • Adequately challenged me: 4.18
  • Did her best to make class interesting: 4.23
  • Grades fairly: 4.375
  • Expects me to do my best: 4.66
  • Cares about her students: 4.47
  • Loves math: 4.76

What comments do you have about how Mrs. Grayson changed seats? (not required)

  • It’s good (14)
