SELFIE School Report
The SELFIE School Report (SSR) is an interactive document that highlights perceptions of what is working well at the school and where improvements may be needed. The data are displayed in different ways, allowing for various comparisons and analyses at different levels of granularity. A general overview of the five main SSR sections that the SSR interactive report covers is provided in the table below, along with some anonymous sample results.*
General tips that the EC gives for analysing SELFIE results suggest focusing on (a) high or low aggregate scores, and (b) any discrepancies in how students, teachers and school leader-staff view technology use. This should help the school to gain better understanding of where action might be needed.
It is up to the individual school to decide how the wish to use their results. The SSR can be employed to kickstart an internal dialogue within the school community, possibly with the aim of devising an action plan to improve the use of digital technologies for teaching and learning. The opportunity is available to compare year-on-year results and thereby to track medium term trends and improvements.
1. Overview of SELFIE results
This section of the report shows the average rating each user group gave in each of SELFIE’s eight thematic areas:
- (A) Leadership,
- (B) Collaboration and Networking,
- (C) Infrastructure and Equipment,
- (D) Continuing Professional Development,
- (E) Pedagogy: Supports and Resources,
- (F) Pedagogy: Implementation in classroom,
- (G) Assessment Practices,
- (H) Student Digital Competence.
For each area, the number of questions answered by each user group is also displayed.
2. Results per Area
This section shows the average rating for each statement within a given area (Leadership, Infrastructure and Equipment, etc.). For each area, the questions answered by each user group are also shown.
3. Results per User
Overall results are also displayed for each specific user type. Results for each area are grouped in colour-coded sections, with each numbered spoke of the wheel representing a specific SELFIE question.
The light grey segments in the graph indicate core questions that were either not posed to this user group or, alternatively, received a “not applicable (N/A)” answer from every single respondent in that group.
4. Statements defined by the school
In addition to results related to SELFIE-standard (core and optional) item questions, the results for any statements that the school itself created for inclusion are also given. These are displayed as separate bar charts for each user group. Each bar shows the average rating given for that statement and indicates the number of users who responded to it.
5. Additional Areas
Ratings are also displayed for the six additional areas that are featured in SELFIE questionnaires to provide the school with more details. These are:
- Usefulness of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activity
- Individual teacher confidence in the use of technology
- Percentage of time spent teaching through digital technology
- Factors inhibiting the use of technology
- Approach to the adoption of new technologies
- Student use of technology within and outside of school
