You're invited to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials survey

posted Apr 1, 2014, 5:29 AM by Joseph Duncan   [ updated Apr 1, 2014, 5:49 AM ]

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Beginning March 17, 2014, teachers, parents, and students across Illinois will have an opportunity to participate in
the second annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of the inner
workings of your child’s school. As a parent, this opportunity will allow you to share your thoughts on the
important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school.

On behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be administered online by
UChicago Impact at the University of Chicago. This survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict
important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. These five indicators
that affect and predict school success are: (1) Effective Leaders, (2) Collaborative Teachers, (3) Involved Families,
(4) Supportive Environments, and (5) Ambitious Instruction. Research in more than 400 schools has shown that
those strong on at least three of these “5Essential” indicators were 10 times more likely to improve student
learning gains in math and reading than those weak on three or more Essentials.

All teachers in K-12 and students in grades 6-12 will be responding to the survey. 5Essentials Reports will be generated
for schools if their teachers and/or students meet the response rate threshold of 50 percent. These reports will
be sent to schools and districts in June and included in the state school report card. If at least 30 percent of
parents complete the parent survey, a parent supplement will also be generated. The parent data will not be
reported on the state report card.

Your participation in the parent portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school
and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be
connected to you or your child. The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be conducted March 17, 2014 through April 25,
2014. To take the survey, visit or follow the steps below:

1. Visit

2. Click on the “Take the Survey” button at the top of the page

3. Select “Parent Survey”

In addition to parent data, having direct input from students is critical for developing targeted, actionable plans
for improvement. Your child will complete the 5Essentials during school unless you decline his or her participation
in writing. Students’ identities will be completely confidential. Teachers or administrators will never see
individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total
percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material.

Please be aware that under the Protection of Pupil Rights Act. 20 U.S.C. Section 1232(c) (1) (A), you have the right
to review a copy of the questions asked of your student. Survey questions, as well as more information about the
Illinois 5Essentials Survey, can be found at If you have any questions or concerns,
please contact 5Essentials Client Services at 1-866-440-1874 or
