Terrace Metrics

Terrace Metrics Resiliency Survey

The Terrance Metrics Resiliency Survey will be given to all Turkey Foot Middle School students at some point starting on February 4th up through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. This survey is designed to examine the social/emotional strengths and needs of participating students in grades 3-12.  The survey has been administered to over 30,0000 students across multiple school districts.  More information is available in this  brief video at https://www.terracemetrics.org/consent-form/   

 

Research shows that building  social/emotional strengths are necessary to learn these larger life skills. The indicators assessed by Terrace Metrics are known to contribute to the development of these strengths through positive school and learning experiences.

 

  What are the Benefits of the Survey?   Research shows that schools play an important role in raising healthy children through the measurement and teaching of social emotional skills.  Data from this survey gives us the ability to identify students with strong social-emotional development.  We can also detect students who need intervention.   In addition, the data provides school counselors with the ability to design, implement and evaluate small group interventions that address specific student needs.  Most importantly, this tool allows us to examine the needs of the WHOLE STUDENT, in combination with academic and other non-cognitive data.

 

Do I need to do anything for my child to be screened?

No.  Paperwork that will be sent home with students prior to them being screened is only returned to the school if YOU DO NOT want your child to participate. 

 

Will I be notified if my student is at risk?

You will be contacted by the school’s counselor or administrator if your child’s scores are significantly below their peers across several indicators. In addition, you will be contacted if your child endorses being at risk for severe depression. 

 

How will  I get results?

Results will be emailed or texted to the information listed in Infinite Campus.  If your primary email or text message is not correct, please update it by calling the school.  Results will be sent after testing is concluded.
