This product was developed by L. Kyriakides, F. C. Worrell, L. D. Kuterbach, and J. Follman.

Product Description
Student surveys can be used to help inform instruction and have been shown to be useful forms of formative assessment for teachers of academically talented and regular education high school students. Kyriakides designed student surveys and examined the reliability and validity of student ratings of teachers in Grade 6 classrooms in Cyprus. He found that measures of teacher-student relationships and cooperation were correlated with student achievement in mathematics and language and affective outcomes.

General Target Population Information
As long as student surveys are written well and account for students' developmental level, they can be informative to teachers at all levels, in all subjects. Kyriakides used student surveys with Grade 6 teachers.
