Surveys

Community 2011

ICT Survey:
  1. Do you have internet connection at home? Yes / No
  2. Is your internet connection dial-up or broadband (Circle)
  3. We are looking at getting a Learning Management System for the school. This will allow parents top access assessment information about their child. It will also have the facility for students to establish a “portfolio” where they can, among other things, upload examples of their work for parents to look at and comment on. Would you find this a useful tool to involve you in your child’s education? Yes / No
Survey results:
We had returns from 92% of parents/caregivers
98% have internet access at home
95% have broadband access
85% indicated that an LMS would be a useful tool
