Elevate is designed to be used by classroom teachers of grades 6-12 and can be used in any subject area. It is commonly used in math, ELA, science, social studies, foreign language, and visual and performing arts classes.
Individuals who support teachers’ training and development (e.g., instructional coaches, school leaders, support organizations) can also leverage Elevate in collaboration with teachers to:
- Understand trends in students’ experiences,
- Identify opportunities for professional development, and/or
- Identify, celebrate, and learn from the wisdom of teachers, departments, or other organizational units that are exceptionally good at creating engaging and equitable learning conditions.
PERTS recommends against surveying students in more than 4 of their classes at the same time because of the possibility of survey fatigue.
