Data Dashboard

Your dashboard houses data about your schools from multiple sources including GEAR UP surveys, the College & Career Readiness Indicator, the Oregon Department of Education and the National Student Clearinghouse.

Surveys

In order to accurately assess the impact of GEAR UP, you will administer surveys each year to your students, parents and staff to gauge their attitudes, expectations and knowledge about postsecondary education. See how the 2016-17 survey questions match up with each of Oregon GEAR UP's 5 R's.

We will provide you with paper (students and parents) and/or online (students, parents and educators) versions of the survey. Choose the version that makes the most sense for your school.

Parent Consent Forms

The purpose of these consent forms is to inform parents/guardians of the various evaluation activities including surveys and potentially focus groups. The consent forms cover the entire grant period, so these only need to be sent to parents of NEW students in GEAR UP (i.e., new seventh-grade students for cohort schools, and any students in other grade levels served by GEAR UP who are new to the school). These are passive parent consent forms, which means that parents do NOT need to return the forms if they are okay with their children participating in evaluation activities.
