Remote Learning Check-In Survey Fall 2020

Survey results help guide APS administrators and the Board of Education as they move forward with plans for teaching and learning.

The results are in, and they are mixed.

A recent survey found that just over half of Albuquerque Public Schools families say remote learning is going well for their children, while just under half say it isn’t.

Families feel a little better about online learning with their child’s teacher, with about 57 percent agreeing it is going well, compared to 42 percent who disagree. 

In a similar survey of APS teachers, 60 percent say online learning is going well for teachers but only half say it is going well for students.

The parent and teacher surveys are the latest in a series of electronic surveys the district is using for feedback during the pandemic. Results help guide APS administrators and the Board of Education as they move forward with plans for teaching and learning.

Nearly 17,000 families and about 3,200 teachers responded to the most recent survey emailed in mid-September.  

The parent survey found that seven out of 10 families believe their children are receiving the support they need to finish assignments, and about the same number say they are able to help their children complete assignments.

The most difficult challenge for students, according to the survey, is completing assignments on their own, with fewer than half of respondents saying their children can complete assignments with little or no help from others.

Most families who responded to the survey say internet connectivity works well in their homes as do APS-issued devices such as Chromebooks and iPads. About 20 percent of families indicated problems with their internet, and about a third with APS-issued devices.

Three-fourths of families say learning resources provided by schools such as Google Classroom and Edgenuity have been helpful.

Parent Check-In Survey Results

The teacher survey found that only half of respondents felt prepared for remote learning, and only a third feel prepared for hybrid learning – a mix of remote and in-person learning with safety measures that the district is tentatively scheduled to switch to in January.
