“We now have a questionnaire that we refer to as Student Orientation of School – Questionnaire (SOS-Q). It looks at life through the lens of the student to really see where they’re at and then teachers and administrators can develop evidence-based understanding and strategies for potentially at risk students and help them achieve greater success in school”

Le questionnaire SOS-Q s’intéresse aux informations suivantes :

Grades 4 to 6:

  • Safe and Caring School: student’s perception of school environment
  • Peers: perceived supports from friends and ability to get along with peers
  • Self Confidence: Student’s conviction that they are capable and able to be successful at school and beyond
  • External Resilience: Perceived ability to cope and adapt successfully in the face of challenges
  • Internal Resilience: Perceived ability to resist anxiety and maintain internal emotional and mental balance

Grades 7 to 12 add:

  • Utility of School: Student’s sense of usefulness of school in relation to future opportunities
  • Extra Curricular Activities: Student’s participation in and perceived value of extra-curricular activities

The SOS-Q was initially used by a Canadian school district to better understand the reasons for dropping out of school. Since then the project has grown into a multi-organizational collaboration. This study demonstrates persistent associations between student orientation to school, academic achievement, and high school completion and makes the case for integrating valuable non-cognitive components within comprehensive student information and assessment systems.
