The Department of Defense Education Activity announced this month the results of its 2006-2007 customer satisfaction survey.

The survey, administered every other year to parents, students in grades 4 to 12 and teachers, provides DODEA with valuable information about the quality of education it provides and areas needing improvement. More than 63,000 people responded to the survey from Nov. 1, 2006 to  Feb. 28, 2007.

“We are extremely pleased with the increased response rate across the respondent categories,” said Dr. Janet Rope, DODEA’s administrator, System Accountability and Research. “The high response rate will provide our schools with valuable information about their programs and will be critical to us in improving the quality of education we provide to students of Department of Defense families.”

Questions in the survey related to school issues including curriculum, instruction, standards, assessment, technology, partnerships and student support.

Survey results will help DODEA plan for the future.

A complete wrap-up of the survey results is available at DODEA will use the information to improve planning efforts at all levels throughout the organization. The next survey will be in November 2008.
