Grade 7 Survey: The Middle Years Development Instrument

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Sometime during January/February, at a date yet to be determined, grade 7 students will be participating in the Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI) by completing an online survey.

A hard copy of the information letter  was sent home with all grade 7 students on December 1.

The survey is part of a study led by researchers at the Human Early Learning Partnership at the University of British Columbia.  The purpose of the study is to better understand and measure areas of middle years child development that contribute to children’s well-being, health and school success by asking children themselves about their thoughts, feelings and experiences in school and in the community.

Researchers, schools, and governments use the study results to plan programs and services for children.  For more information about the MDI, please read the attached letter here and visit : www.earlylearning.ubc.ca/mdi
