Ministry Student Learning Survey

The Student Learning Survey is an annual province-wide census of Grades 4, 7, 10 and 12 students, their parents and staff in public schools. The questions were developed with input from partner groups, teachers and experts in educational measurement and special education.

It usually takes about 30 minutes to complete the required survey questions – it may take longer depending on the number of questions added by schools and districts.

Providing access

The survey administrator (AWIS) supplies logon numbers to schools for distribution to staff, parents and students.

Most questions on the Student Learning Survey – student versions – are identifiable by Personal Education Number (PEN). There are several questions that are anonymous, where the student’s PEN is encrypted prior to the data being stored. The open-ended questions are screened for personal identifiable information prior to analysis.

Staff, principal/vice-principal, and parent surveys are anonymous.

Students and staff require a logon number to access the appropriate survey. Parents can access the survey with a logon number (automatically selects the appropriate survey for the child’s school and grade level), or without a logon number (the parent must select the child’s school and grade level in order to access the appropriate survey).

Take the survey

The survey is available from January 8, 2024 to May 3, 2024. You will need a computer with access to the Internet (with basic bandwidth). Students and staff will need a logon number provided by the school; parents can complete the survey with or without a logon number.
