Request Information on Group Surveys

Thank you for your interest in the Compass Survey of Core Human Attributes for groups.

We currently offer the ability for schools, teachers,  and nonprofits in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia/Oceania to use either the Youth Survey for Ages 10-17 or the Adult Survey for Ages 18+ to measure eight core abilities:  empathy, curiosity, sociability, resilience, self-awareness, integrity, resourcefulness, and creativity. We also work with researchers internationally. See information on our research.

We partner with Alchemer, a highly reputable and secure data-collection platform to collect and analyze our survey data.  During COVID, and until further notice, our group surveys are free as long as they are  straightforward for us to manage, with no customizations. Teachers are welcome to use the Youth Survey for classroom assignments. See our article about how to spark conversations about inner strengths in the classroom.

The process for administering a group survey on your end is easy.  We send a special link to the group organizer to provide to your survey-takers. Each survey taker gets a personal and confidential report by email, just as they would if they took an individual survey from the Roots of Action website. The group organizer receives an anonymous summary data report for the group.  This data can be shared with the group, compared from one year to the next, or used as a pre- and post-test for a variety of program experiences. 

A standard Youth report summarizes data by gender, grade level/age, and ethnicity.  A standard Adult report summarizes data by age categories, gender, and ethnicity.  At this time, we are not providing custom reports.  

Please review our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service for information on how we protect the privacy of survey-takers, especially children, and the limitations of our liability.
