The Gallup Student Poll - Australia and New Zealand


A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO MEASURING STUDENT SUCCESS

For over 40 years, the Gallup Education Practice has studied the success of education systems and the key factors that impact student performance. As a thought leader in education, Gallup research and insights inform discussions from local school boards to University classrooms to national debates.

NOW IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND! The Gallup Student Poll tracks the hope, engagement, and well-being of students in years 5 through 12. It is a measure that captures the YOUTH VOICE, a critical but too often missing part of the national dialogue surrounding student performance and success.

HOPE, ENGAGEMENT, AND WELL-BEING results fill the data void, helping schools, districts, and community leaders to build more effective, holistic strategies aimed at student success.

The Gallup Student Poll adds clarity to the discussion around the purpose and utility of non-cognitive measures and their relevance to student success. The poll measures student hope for the future, engagement with school, and well-being - factors that have been shown to drive students' grades, achievement scores, retention, and future employment.
