VOCAL is an annual survey sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Participating students are asked to share their views on three dimensions and nine topics of school climate:
Grade 4 Survey
Grade 5 Survey
Grade 8 Survey
Grade 10 Survey
The Department will offer VOCAL data usage workshops in late fall. VOCAL trainings will be offered in late fall to demonstrate the new Edwin reporting system for VOCAL data.
Views of Climate and Learning (VOCAL) is an annual school climate survey sponsored by the DESE administered to students in grade 4, grade 5, grade 8, and grade 10 to capture their views on three dimensions of school climate: engagement, safety (bullying) and environment. A new dashboard with 2022 results will be available in Edwin in July. This session will provide a brief overview of VOCAL and then walkthrough the new interactive dashboard. The webinar will be held at 11:00 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, July 26. Interested educators are asked to register for the VOCAL webinar.
