The 5Essentials is a statewide survey to collect feedback on individual schools’ learning conditions and environment. The 5Essentials Survey is an evidence-based system designed to drive school improvement by measuring change and providing individualized, actionable reports for each school. The 5Essentials Survey is for all certified pre-kindergarten through 12th grade teachers and students in sixth through 12th grades across the state. The survey is based on 20-plus years of research by the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research on five components found to be critical for school success.
