Ofsted Surveys Now on iPad

25 September 2013

The Opinion Box, a specialist research data collection company, has integrated Ofsted's survey requirements into a user-friendly system which can be used on specially adapted iPads. These bespoke, interactive surveys are immediately analysed in realtime, freeing up hours of time for teachers.

This new system is particularly ideal at parent gatherings. Parents are free to enter their opinions anonymously, without the face-to-face pressure of answering members of staff directly - which can often be embarrassing and hold parents back from expressing their honest opinions. The Opinion Box uses its own software to ensure that survey questions are straightforward and simple, with several optional viewing and output formats.

One of the first schools to take up the iPad survey system is Alexandra College of Enterprise, a 1400-pupil comprehensive in the West Midlands. Assistant deputy headteacher, Julie Cornfield, was impressed with the results from a parents evening in June 2013: 'We were able to act on the survey's outcome the very next day,' she said. 'The system has freed us from an enormous amount of paperwork and data inputting and given us instant, in-depth analysis results that are reliable - with the bonus that more parents are now taking part. Now, over 85% of parents at an event will respond. Before, we were lucky to get 25% response.'
