The Student Profile Survey II (SPS II) is a self-report instrument designed to measure student attitude-belief and expectation-performance change from freshman to senior year in the five dimensions of the Profile of the Graduate at Graduation: Open to Growth, Intellectually Competent, Religious, Loving, and Committed to Doing Justice.
The freshman version of SPS is intended for students in their freshman year at a Jesuit high school. Students are asked to reflect on the experiences at their high school and indicate their degree of agreement or disagreement with the SPS statements. Some questions from the SPS Open to Growth section are “Should I . . . ”; “Should my school prepare me to . . . ”; and “Do I . . .”:
- See God in all things
- Know Jesus as a real person
- Accept myself for who I am
Much like the freshman version, the senior version of SPS elicits student responses to assess how well the school has prepared the student along the same areas, changing “should my school prepare me to . . .”; “has my school prepared me to . . .”:
In reporting the results of SPS, data are grouped according to the following five areas:
- Open to Growth
- Intellectually Competent
- Committed to Doing Justice
