Description of Reports Available

A variety of reporting tools are available within three school days of closing your survey. The One-Click Report, Interactive Charts and Open-Ended Question Responses come standard with the Tell Them From Me® (TTFM®) student surveys. Depending on the measures selected, you may also receive Thematic Reports (labelled as Student Engagement Report).


One-Click Reports

This quick-and-easy PDF report is ideal for Principals and School Coordinators who want an overview of up-to-date, accurate information in seconds. The preconfigured format of the report shows school-wide, grade and sex* results for each measure with TTFM norms provided for context. A quick glance at each measure makes it easy to spot patterns or anomalies.


Interactive Charts

These dynamic charts enable the busy Principal and School Coordinators to quickly conduct in-depth analysis. Principal and School Coordinators can look at the results by subpopulations within a school such as grade, sex, language spoken at home, Aboriginal status, or any other drill-down criteria your school has added to the survey. Administrators can also add comparison lines and data from previous years' results to create charts which will help to support or identify priority initiatives.


Open-Ended Question Responses

The Open-Ended Questions you add to your school's survey allow students to express their open and honest opinions anonymously. You can review their responses through the Open-Ended Questions Report. Results are viewable through a 'word cloud' tool, providing the ability to focus on frequently mentioned topics or filter by grade or sex.


Thematic Reports

TTFM offers a range of preconfigured 'thematic reports' that provide administrators with in-depth analysis of specific domains. The findings are delivered in a comprehensive four-page PDF report, which also includes a literature overview. Which thematic reports you receive depends on the content included in your survey.


Student Engagement (primary and secondary)

With leading-edge indicators on social, institutional, and intellectual engagement, this report provides Principals and School Coordinators with powerful data. Rather than making decisions based on hunches or on feedback received from a small group of students in a school, Principals and School Coordinators have a reliable report that quantifies the findings.


Bullying and School Safety (primary and secondary)

This focused report presents school-level bullying and school safety data. Principals and School Coordinators are able to determine the type of bullying that is occurring in the school, where and when it occurs, how students respond, how safe their students feel, and other information critical to school improvement planning.


School Completion (secondary only)

This report groups several measures that can be used to examine the likelihood of school completion. Detailed information allows Principals and School Coordinators to identify specific populations of at-risk students and gain a deeper understanding of the factors contributing to drop-outs at their school.


Career Pathways (secondary only)

The formation of a career or vocational identity is a critical developmental task of childhood and adolescence. It entails developing an understanding of one's values, attitudes, competencies, engaging in career exploration, planning and establishing viable career goals. While it is the individual that plays the most important role in the formation of career identity, this process is also influenced by parents, peers, and school staff. In this survey module, school-level data is gathered on the factors that support student development of career identities, as well as an assessment of their active engagement in career exploration.


* In the reports, the term "sex" stands for the biological sex of the person at birth, not the "gender" that the person may identify themselves with.
