USING RESOURCE CHECK AS A GROUP

How does it work?
  • Assess your district: You and your colleagues each complete the Resource Check assessment on your own, rating your district from your own perspective. Your individual responses are confidential.
  • Compare your responses to the group: Your assessment is assigned to a group, and you have access to a “group report,” which shows your answers as well as the number of people who answered the same or differently on each question, and overall.
  • See results graphically: Group results are shown in easy-to-read bar graphs.
  • Complete Resource Check again and again: You can take Resource Check more than once, save each instance with a different name, and assign it to a different group.
  • Privacy: Your responses are confidential, so you can feel free to be honest; and you’ll get to view the anonymized, candid responses of your peers.
Why Resource Checks for Groups?
  • Check for consensus across a leadership team: You can easily see if the group agrees on the district’s strengths and weaknesses, and whether your perspective differs significantly from others.
  • Check for consensus among groups: Different departments or leadership groups might have very different views of what can be improved in a district. For example, the central office might think that leadership support is fine, whereas a group of principals might flag that as an issue. 
    Additionally, coaches, partnering organizations, and technical assistance providers can use Resource Check with the various different districts they might work with.
  • In your discussion, consider the following:
    • Which areas do most respondents feel is a strength for the district? (these are areas where the overall score is relatively high)
    • Which areas do most respondents feel is a challenge for the district? (these are areas where the overall score is relatively low)
    • Which areas have the most agreement?
    • Which areas have the most disagreement?
    • Are there areas where most respondents answered “don’t know?”
How do I get started?
  • Set up a free ERS Account 
  • Email Kristan Singleton , Director of Tools and Technologies with your request to form a group. We will provide logistical support on getting accounts created and share what we have learned from successful groups. To help us help you better, please tell us a little bit about how you envision using the tool as well as how many people are in the group. We will then create a group for all desired accounts.
