Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS) provides vital insight into students’ attitudes and mindsets that may be having a negative impact on their attainment.
Developed by a team of chartered educational psychologists and four universities over a number of years, the PASS digital survey takes just 20 minutes to complete and provides teachers with a highly reliable and valid measurement of their students’ attitudes, based on an underlying national sample of more than 250,000 students.
PASS looks at nine attitudinal factors that are proven to be significantly linked to educational goals. These are:
- Feelings about school
- Perceived learning capability
- Preparedness for learning
- Attitudes to teachers
- General work ethic
- Confidence in learning
- Attitudes to attendance
- Response to curriculum demands.
The easy-to-interpret report generated once the survey has been completed allows schools to detect possible barriers to student learning, including issues around confidence, resilience, motivation and concentration. The survey results enable you to identify, track and monitor the type of teaching and intervention each student requires, helping to raise attainment and ensure student wellbeing.
PASS also adds valuable insight to the ability data you have from CAT4 by explaining why some students’ attainment doesn’t appear to match their ability.
