Here is a great survey for parents to give their children. It measures their readiness for learning. Courtesy of America Achieves.
Do you ever wonder what makes your kids ready to learn?
Developing learning habits like perseverance, hard work, and curiosity helps children achieve more in school - and later in college, work, and life.
So I'm writing to share a resource with you and the parents in your school. Raise the Bar designed this free 5-minute Learning Habits survey to help parents understand their children's strengths and weaknesses so they are better equipped to help them improve.
Try it at: try.raisethebarparents.org
If you like what you see, we hope you will share our Learning Habits survey and the other resources on our site with parents in your school!

The questions in the survey have been developed by Raise the Bar in conjunction with the Character Lab to provide parents with formative feedback on skills that researchers and teachers alike have linked with success.
