Metiri’s student student measures are designed to be used with 4-12th grade students. Our tool kit includes digital learning practices at the school or classroom level, structured observation protocols, self-directed learning inventories, student engagement surveys, and several focus group and interview protocols. These measures individually and cumulatively provide schools, districts, or other stakeholders the opportunity to capture data that accurately represents student life within and outside of the classroom. Surveys can be a one-time data point, or they can be administered overtime to demonstrate a longitudinal views.
