PASS Reports and Analysis

The PASS survey takes about 20 minutes to complete as pupils read and comment on 50 statements. Users will be able to access a report as soon as their group of students has completed the survey.

This includes analysis of both group and individual level, providing a clear insight into the mindset of pupils and showing immediately where support is needed. PASS also offers analysis by any required demographic: such as nationality, EAL category, ethnicity or additional educational need.

What can I do with the data?

  • Identify and understand attitudinal barriers to learning that may be affecting attainment
  • Help improve behaviour, attendance and overall achievement
  • See clearly where intervention may be required
  • Provide important information for pastoral support and parents

PASS Excel report

All data from the PASS survey including all comments to the PASS statements and all pupil data entered in Testwise can be downloaded as an ExcelTM report. You can filter and sort data and create graphs in order to analyse the data and present to senior leaders. PASS data can also be usefully integrated with other school data, such as ability and attainment scores.

To find out how you can use ExcelTM to present your PASS data more clearly, watch our PASS ExcelTM help videos.


PASS PDF report

The PASS PDF report can be broken down into three levels:

  • Level 1 – Whole school reporting
    An evaluation of overall gender, ethnicity, year groups etc
  • Level 2 – Cohort Reporting
    The assessment of pupils in the context of each other
  • Level 3 - Individual Pupil Reporting
    A standardised measure of individual pupils' attitudes

Results can be collated to reveal whole class and entire school learner climate, and broken down to show how the school compares nationally as well by gender, ethnic categories and year groups.


Measure the effectiveness of intervention strategies

Allowing a minimum of 12 weeks between surveys, you can run the PASS survey for a second time with the school/cohort and then compare the two reports to see changes in attitudes as a result of interventions that you have used. If you would like any help in doing this or would like GL Education Group to do this for you, please contact us. The PASS standalone version can be used if you only want to re-measure individuals or small groups.

PASS Online Intervention Service

Users of Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS) can benefit from an accompanying Online Intervention Service. The service provides a useful resource of over 1500 combinations of possible intervention strategies drawn from research reviews and best practice at all levels and linked to the nine PASS attitudinal factors.

PASS report for downloadable version

For the downloadable version of PASS, a simple report is produced instantly on the device that the survey is taken on (usually a staff-member’s laptop or computer). The report provides standardised data relating to the 9 attitudinal measures as well as a bar chart for easy visualisation.
