In the spring and summer of 2009, Alpha Omega Academy® (AOA) students using Switched-On Schoolhouse® (SOS) were given the opportunity to reply to a series of survey questions. Each survey asked a consistent group of questions about a specific subject and the SOS teacher for that subject. Additionally, each survey included questions about another topic, such as the student's use of technology and the student's general experience in AOA.
Hundreds of distance learning students responded positively about their experiences in AOA. In addition, the thoughts and opinions shared by the students offered a great deal of insight, and the Academy's staff and faculty are currently implementing some of the suggestions offered by students. Other ideas offered in the surveys have been given to AOP's product development team for inclusion in future versions of Switched-On Schoolhouse courses. We look forward to implementing several of our students' suggestions and improving each student's experience in AOA!
Of all the statistics gathered from the surveys, perhaps the most telling statistic is that 80% of students said they would recommend Alpha Omega Academy to someone else. Some of the other student responses are included in the charts below:
