The LEAP Personalized Learning Surveys

Are you implementing personalized learning at your school? Gain valuable insights into teacher practices and student experiences in the classroom by participating in the LEAP Personalized Learning Teacher and Student Surveys.

Both surveys are administered twice a year, in the fall and in the spring. We are offering these surveys to schools and districts at no cost.

This fall, the survey will open on October 9, 2017 and remain open through December 15, 2017. The sign-up period will last through mid November.

How do I measure my personalized learning initiative?? Exploring the LEAP Personalized Learning Surveys

In this 45 minute webinar, school and district leaders will learn about how LEAP has rigorously developed a validated survey instrument to measure the level of implementation of personalized learning practices in the classroom. By surveying teachers on their practice and students on their experiences, schools and districts can identify what aspects of personalized learning are being implemented and to what extent, as well as measure progress over time. Join us to to find out what your district and schools can get from participating and the easy steps you can take to register.

Date: September 20, 2017

Time: 3:30 – 4:15 CT; 4:30 – 5:15 ET

Please note that participation in LEAP Personalized Surveys is free of cost.


The LEAP Personalized Learning Surveys measure the degree to which teaching practices are personalizing learning for students. The surveys ask teachers about their practices and students about their classroom experiences.

Both surveys were developed with the highest standards in partnership with American Institutes for Research, an independent behavioral and social science research and evaluation organization. Both contain rigorous, reliable measures.

Last year, 2,000 teachers and 14,000 students across twelve states took part in the survey. Participants who take the survey receive reports that describe the level of their personalized learning implementation measured against a set of nationally-normed these standards, as well as compared to results from schools across the country.

What do the surveys measure?
The LEAP Personalized Learning Surveys can be used to:

  • Assess the current degree of personalization in a classroom
  • Evaluate the success of personalized learning programs or professional development
  • Determine priorities for professional development

Who should take it?
The surveys can be administered to 3rd-12th grade students and K-12th grade teachers. Survey reports for 4th-8th grade students and K-8th grade teachers will contextualize a given school’s data within our national standards, a scale that ranges from “Emerging Personalization” to “High Personalization,” as well as against other schools taking the surveys.

These standards are still being developed for 3rd and 9th-12th grade students, as well as 9th-12th grade teachers. You will still receive a report for these groups including your school’s survey responses compared to all schools. Data from this fall’s surveys will help us inform the development of standards for these groups, which we plan to release in the coming year.
