Quality Assurance Surveys for Principals, Teachers, Chairpersons of Boards of Management and Chairpersons of Parents’ Associations


Thank you for taking part in this quality assurance survey. As part of a process of quality assuring its work, the Inspectorate of the Department of Education and Skills invites principals, teachers, chairpersons of boards of management or their nominees and chairpersons of parents’ associations or their nominees, to complete this survey.

The survey is short and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. You will be asked for your views on the whole-school evaluation (WSE) or whole-school evaluation, management, leadership and learning (WSE-MLL) process.

At the bottom of this page, you are asked to indicate your role: principal, teacher, chairperson/nominee of a board of management, chairperson/nominee of a parents’ association. Principals and teachers are then asked to indicate whether your school is a primary or post-primary school. All respondents will then be asked if they wish to complete the survey in English or Irish.

Depending on your selection, you will be directed to the relevant survey and asked to insert your username and password to begin completing the survey. The username and password are designed to assure your anonymity as a respondent.

You will then be asked a series of questions and you should simply click on the answer that best reflects your opinion. There are no right or wrong answers. It is your perspectives that matter.

At the end of the survey, you will have an opportunity to provide additional feedback on the evaluation process in your school, if you wish to do so.

Thank you.
