Statewide tables by educational setting, racial/ethnic group, and sexual orientation - Minnesota Student Survey

 

By educational setting

The Minnesota Student Survey is administered separately to three different kinds of educational settings: (1) regular public schools, including charter schools and tribal schools; (2) Area Learning Centers and alternative schools; and (3) juvenile corrections facilities. MDH has prepared tables for each population showing the statewide results for each question on the survey. Each file is in PDF form:

Regular public schools by gender 2007 2010 2013 2016 2019
Regular public schools by grade only 2007 2010 2013 2016 2019
Alternative schools and area learning centers 2007 2010 2013 2016 2019
Juvenile corrections facilities 2007 2010 2013 2016 2019

 

By racial/ethnic group

MDH has prepared statewide tables for students from different racial/ethnic groups attending regular public schools. Students are asked to choose one or more racial/ethnic groups to indicate how they might describe themselves. Because more than one group can be chosen, it is no simple matter to report survey results. Two options are offered. One option provides tables on students who checked one racial/ethnic group and no others—for example, African-American only. The second option provides tables on all students who checked a particular racial-ethnic group, including those who checked one or more other groups. These tables are based only on students in regular public schools. Each file is in PDF form:
