Thank you for your participation in Speak Up! This survey is
about your child(ren)'s education and your ideas about how your school is using
technology to improve teaching and learning. We are also interested in how you
and your child use technology for learning and communicating at home.
Your opinions matter! Since 2003, the Speak Up responses
from over 5 million teachers, students, and parents have been shared with
local, state, and national leaders. The Speak Up data is used regularly by
policymakers who are developing new programs, funding and policies for
The survey consists of a series of multiple choice questions plus an
open-ended type question at the end where you can write in your response. The
survey should only take you about 20 minutes to complete. Before the open-ended
question, there are six demographic questions. These questions are optional
and are used only by us to give context to our national data findings.
All of your answers are 100% confidential. We do not
ask your name and there is no way for us to identify your specific answers nor
are we interested in your individual answers. Rather we are interested in the
views of parents nationwide. We encourage you to talk with your children and
their teachers about your ideas for using technology effectively for learning.
The word "technology" means different things to different people.
For this survey, technology means all kinds of electronic devices like
computers, tablets, laptops, Chromebooks, and smartphones, as well as online
websites, and software. If there are any items that you do not understand or
are not familiar with, please feel free to skip to the next question.
By being part of Speak Up you are sharing your ideas to improve
education. Please feel free to encourage your friends and fellow
parents to participate in Speak Up.
