CensusAtSchool 2020 

The questionnaire is open to the end of 2020.  All the information you need to get started is here 

One goal for 2020 is to get more Primary Schools involved.
Have a conversation with others in your  Community of Learning | Kāhui Ako so they can also get involved in the project.

2019  had the largest number of participants since 2005 with over 26,000 students from 482 schools taking part. 927 teachers registered their classes for CensusAtSchool.

New question topics in 2019 included climate change, time spent on digital devices, handling interpersonal issues, attitudes and perceived parental attitudes to activities such as drinking and smoking by young people.

There were 778,000 views of CensusAtSchool pages by 123,000 unique visitors in 2019. Its interlinked iNZight Lite sister project had over half a million sessions in 2019.

And more…

Please send any suggestions or resources you would like to share to the CAS team  (Enable Javascript to see the email address).

Enjoy teaching and learning data science with your new classes!
