As a teacher:
If you answered a resounding ‘yes’ to these questions, you’ll understand some of the reasons why standardised attitudinal measures have been gaining popularity in schools up and down the country for some time.
“PASS provides us with an excellent way of understanding feelings and concerns students may have, as well as identifying students for targeted interventions. It allows us to identify the root causes of why quiet students may be lacking confidence in their learning ability and it highlights students who may be at risk of disengaging. It is a very affirming exercise for our school self-evaluation when the vast majority of responses about school are so positive. It’s great to see how much they like school and feel supported by us.”
Esther Doyle, Guidance Counsellor, Presentation Secondary School, Waterford City, Ireland
