Online survey: clear, friendly, responsive

Responses from questionnaires are stored in our databanks

Pupils and students can still complete on paper, if you prefer

Questionnaires are fetched by secure courier and logged in the SHEU offices

Questions are composed collaboratively with clients and designed with the pupils and students in mind

Online Surveys

Surveys can be completed on paper or online.

We launched our online survey service in 2004 and at the time we had the idea that nearly all our survey work would be online by now.  While the proportion of work online has increased, some clients find that paper questionnaires are still more convenient for them.  But what are the benefits of doing a survey online?

Benefits of the Online Survey

  • Greater Student Access: All students in a year group can take part, not just a sample
  • Instant access to results at the end of the survey period
  • Facilities for instant printing of results in different formats for presentations. e.g. graphs
  • Own school/college figures can be compared with the group of others who complete online
  • It is an intelligent questionnaire, students only see questions relevant to them
  • Graphics are more friendly
  • Option for personal health feedback for students
  • Website links for students who finish early
  • Telephone help support

SHEU OATs [Online Analysis Tools]
SHEU have designed OATs, after consultations with clients, to meet the needs of authorities for accurate and fast survey information. Via a secure login, the results from OATs are accessible via all web browsers, without the need to download software, and levels of access are tailored to local requirements. 

SHEU OATs

  • Flexible eg. clients choose who sees survey results
  • Results compared with the main survey or a subset of the results eg. schools can access their own results and compare themselves to similar schools
  • Choices over information displayed eg. you choose to filter the results to show age, location, gender, FSM and smoking
  • Compare locations, gender, issues etc. and trends eg. examine a range of issues over time when you have more than one set of data
  • Export data for further analysis eg. Excel or other software and paste into your text processor or presentation software

Comments about SHEU

"Many thanks for all of the fantastic information that you have sent to me over the years, it has really helped me to plan relevant courses for my students to follow and to help me to focus on the needs of the students I teach."

"The data for (us) are very useful ... This is especially important when evaluating the impact of interventions regarding alcohol or other areas, as the survey data are likely to provide an earlier indication than routine data sources."

Specialist Registrar in Public Health

I've just spent a really interesting half an hour reading through our ...survey (report). Always food for thought and a good way to look at how we can improve.

"...the only question to cause a problem was 'has everyone got a pen?" Supervisor's notes following a school survey

Supervisor's Notes

"One year (following the SHEU survey) responses from our Year 4 cohort caused us concern, so we put in place a number of team building, motivational projects. We then assessed their effectiveness by requesting the SHEU questionnaires for these pupils as Year 5's."

Learning Mentor

"This week I have been working on a major strategy for service design -- it is easy to get solely focussed on hospitals, performance targets, and work force planning -- all very important; but at the same the needs of young people and how we need to work across agencies to address the health needs of today and tomorrow must be recognised. SHEU is founded to do just this."

PCT Performance Manager

I would be extremely interested to see the results as I know how useful this information has been to the other schools in the
borough
