Grade 7 Middle Years Development Survey (MDI)

Dear Parents and Guardians of Students in Grades 7,

Chignecto Central Regional Centre for Education has partnered with the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) at UBC to invite students to take part in completing the Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI). The MDI is a self-report questionnaire that asks children in Grade 4 and Grade 7 about their thoughts, feelings and experiences in school and in the community. The survey questions align with CCRCE’s Thrive and Achieve System Improvement Plan which includes a focus on well-being promoting children’s personal and social competencies.

The questionnaire will be administered between January 25- 28th.

Your child will be bringing home a passive consent letter the first week of December. This letter will also have more information about your child’s participation in the MDI. Please complete the form attached to the parent letter if you DO NOT wish your child to participate, or contact the project staff at mdi@help.ubc.ca . The MDI is voluntary; your child can choose whether they would like to complete the questionnaire.
