Surveys & Questionnaires

  Banach, Banach & Cassidy conducts written surveys, telephone polls, and focus panels for just about purpose or any target audience that you can name.  

And, our survey research pricing is the most competitive in the industry!

Here's what we do:

Our pre-election surveys are custom designed to help you develop a finance campaign strategy and target your messages.

Our school climate surveys are custom designed to help you address internal and external relationships.

Our benchmark surveys are custom designed to help you assess public perceptions, opinions, and support.

Our curriculum-based surveys help you obtain or maintain accredited status.

            In short, we can help you with everything, including... 

    • questionnaire design
    • sample preparation
    • conducting interviews
    • turnkey delivery of custom designed survey research projects

BB&C was named the North Central Association’s “preferred vendor” for survey research, and we authored The Survey Research Primer, which was distributed nationally by NCA’s Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.  

BB&C understands schools and how they work.  We can help you avoid common mistakes... like paying too much,  using survey techniques that don't work, and drawing samples that are not representative of the population you are sampling.yield  

Our survey research clients are typically school districts--large and small--across the United States.

Call us at 586/784-9888 to discuss your survey objectives.  We will give you a no-cost, no-obligation, no-nonsense proposal.

If you are interested in the standard, curriculum based-assessments that we prepared for the North Central Association, scroll through the director and material below.

Banach, Banach & Cassidy has developed a series of questionnaires designed for use at the school and school district levels. All were endorsed by the North Central Association (NCA), and have been used by schools across the United States. (We have already processed data from over 300,000 respondents!)     

            The questionnaires are designed to be used in accreditation, school improvement, marketing, and strategic planning initiatives.  They will … 

· save you time and money

· provide you with professionally developed and pre-tested surveys

· allow comparisons of student, parent, community, and staff perceptions

· allow you to compare your results against a running average of others who have completed the        student, parent, and staff surveys

· provide comprehensive insights into opinions and perceptions

· generate information you need to conduct an NCA self-study and develop the survey portion of        your school profile           


BASIC SURVEYS AVAILABLE FROM BB&C

            There are four basic surveys for use at the school building level and one survey – the Community Survey – for use at the district level (to address the requirements of NCA district accreditation).

            1. Parent Survey

            2. Staff Survey

            3. Student Survey I

            4. Student Survey II

    Student Survey I is designed fopr students in grades 3-5 (although it has been used successfully at the                     1st and 2nd grade levels).

            Student Survey II is designed for students in grades 6-12. 

            If you order a student survey, we send you both versions at the single survey price.  (Some of our client schools have grade configurations that include both grades five and six.  These schools – whether they are K-6, K-12, or some other configuration – use both surveys.)

            The Parent, Student II, and Staff surveys are designed to be administered as written questionnaires. 

            The Student I survey (for grades 3-5) is designed to be administered by a classroom teacher or another responsible adult.  Students are provided with an answer sheet on which to record their responses.

    

PRICING INFORMATION

            Master copies of the Student I, Student II, Parent, and Staff Surveys are $95 each or all four for $235.   (You can make as many copies as you need from each master.)  Each survey master that you purchase can be used twice by your school (e.g., as a benchmark survey and then as a follow-up in two or three years ... or at the conclusion of the accreditation process).

            Each of the master surveys is registered to a school (not a school district), and may be used only by that school.


What does BB&C charge to code and tabulate the surveys?           

            We charge 95 cents per questionnaire (with a $250 minimum charge) to computer process your data.  This charge includes coding the written responses to the open-end or free response questions. 

            We do not charge a minimum of $250 for each survey that you send us.  Rather, it applies to the grand total number of questionnaires that we tabulate.        

            When the tabulation is complete, we provide you with a printout of the numerical and percentage responses for each question in the questionnaire.   

 

Can BB&C provide cross-tabulations of the data?

            Yes. We can cross-tab and variables. For example, we can tell you how all females or all 11th graders, or all 6th grade parents answered all the questions.  You decide which variables, if any, you want cross-tabulated.  Cross-tabulations of data are $50 each.

 

What does BB&C charge to conduct an analysis and prepare a report?

            We charge $900 for a first survey report, $600 for the second report, and $500 for each additional survey report.   For example, if you want an analysis and report for one survey – student, parent, community, or staff – the charge is $900.  If you want an analysis and report for two surveys, the charge is $900 + $600 or $1,500.  If you want an analysis and report for three surveys, the charge is $900 + $600 + 500 or $2,000.

            If you administer both student surveys, we only charge an analysis and report fee for one.

            For the first analysis and report, the $900 fee provides you with a frequency run and percentages and an Executive Summary that includes…

--  a graphic display of your composite scores (including Organizational Effectiveness, Transition Competencies, Learning Expectations, and Instructional Adequacy) which we develop with our proprietary formula.  Your composite scores will be displayed against the running average scores of other schools that have completed the survey. 

--  Focal Points, BB&C’s recommendations regarding areas needing priority attention.

            For each additional analysis and report, the fee provides you with a frequency run and percentages and an Executive Summary that includes…

--  a graphic display of composite scores (using our proprietary formula) for each survey.  Your composite scores will be displayed against the running average score of other schools that have completed the survey.

--  a comparison of student, staff, and/or parent surveys on our proprietary Instructional Adequacy composite.  We’ll also provide you with mean scores on each of the dimensions of the Instructional Adequacy composite 

--  graphic displays showing comparable composite scores for the parent and high school student surveys.

--  comparisons of matching questions from the parent and high school student surveys (allowing you to see how parents and students answered similar questions). 

--  Focal Points, BB&C’s recommendations regarding areas needing priority attention.

 

What if we want to conduct a survey at each school in our school district?

            The questionnaires are designed to be licensed to a single school.  Hence, every school would need to purchase the master questionnaires, and contract for coding, tabulation, and/or report services.

            We do, however, provide a cost-saving option for districts.  It is only available if we code and tabulate the data and write reports.  We treat the entire district as a “school.”  Each school in the school district administers the questionnaires. We code and tabulate the data and write a report for the school district.  Then, we cross-tabulate the data by school.  This results in a master report for the district and cross-tabulations of the data for each school.  Hence, the district gets a report and each school receives its data tabulation!

            The costs associated with this option are:  1) the purchase of one master copy of each questionnaire; 2)  95 cents per completed questionnaire (answer sheet) that we code and tabulate; 3)  regular report charges; and, 4) $50 for each cross-tabulation of the data.  Call us at 586/784-9888 if you would like to explore this option.    

 

Can I tabulate, analyze, and process the surveys myself?

            Once you purchase a questionnaire, you can tabulate it (code open-end questions and computer process the data), analyze it, and write your own report of findings.

            Or, you can contract with BB&C to tabulate your surveys. 

            Or, you can contract with BB&C to tabulate your surveys and write a report (which includes proprietary composite scores, an analysis, comparisons against the running average of other schools, and an Executive Summary of the findings).
