Trauma-Informed School Questionnaire (TISQ) – Individual School Building Assessment

The TISQ is a survey that answers the question: How trauma-informed and resilience-focused is your school? It measures your school staff members’ perceptions of the frequency to which they individually, and the school collectively, exhibit trauma-informed, resilience-focused knowledge and behaviors. The questionnaire builds upon Starr’s 10 Steps to Create a Trauma-Informed Resilient School. Scores indicate where your school is discovering, evolving, or flourishing in each of the 10 steps and identifies where and how to best focus your school’s efforts moving forward.

Who should use the TISQ?

Any school that would like to engage staff members to commit to actions that build a safe, welcoming, and effective learning environment for all students and staff.

Key Features:

  • Provides a measure of your school’s trauma-informed, resilience-focused practices.
  • Includes both quantitative and qualitative open-ended questions to gain insights from your school’s staff.
  • Highlights your school’s strengths in terms of current trauma-informed, resilience-focused knowledge and behaviors.
  • Identifies areas where your school can add strength-based practices to become more trauma-informed and resilience-focused.

NOTE: Assessments for staff five people or less are not recommended.
