Survey-Taking Help for Adults

  • Updated

Educators across the country are surveying their school communities to ensure that they can adequately support everyone during this time of transition. Below you'll find resources to support you in taking your Panorama surveys.

Learn how to take your survey

In this video, you'll learn how to take your survey and make sure that your voice is heard.

  • Use the Read Aloud functionality for survey-taking. The Read Aloud feature is designed to enhance survey-taking accessibility by reading the survey questions out loud. All panorama content is supported by the read aloud functionality.  
    • In order to use this feature, survey takers must click the Turn on read-aloud button at the top of each survey. Once the feature is enabled, a speakerphone icon will appear for each survey question, answer choices, and headers and subheaders.

Read Aloud is supported via most major browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari, etc. If a browser does not support read aloud, the icon will not appear. However, you can use the "text-to-speech" functionality in your web browser to read questions aloud. 

The Read Aloud feature is not available for demo or sample surveys. Once the survey administration window opens, the Read Aloud feature should automatically appear under the student's name.

All supported languages will have access to the read aloud function. If a survey respondent's language is not supported, the read aloud functionality will not appear.

We've tested this across browsers and languages, and found that the tool typically supports all of Panorama standard translated languages, depending on the settings of the individual users browser and operating system.
Here are two resources to add languages to their own browser:

Another option is using the  Google Chrome’s “Text-to-Speech” feature on your computer to have your survey read aloud. If you have any questions at all, please ask your email the Panorama team at

Frequently Asked Questions about Surveys

  • Are survey responses saved partway through the survey?
    • You cannot save your survey responses and return to complete the survey. Responses are submitted when you select the blue submit button, but if you exit the survey without clicking this button, you will have to start over.
  • What if my browser crashed before my surveys were completed?
    • If the “Thank you” screen did not appear, you should retake the survey.
  • What devices can I take my surveys on?
    • Panorama surveys can be taken on any device with an internet browser, including laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, iPads, and smartphones.
  • Can I complete my survey after the survey window for my district has closed?
    • Once your district closes the survey, you will not be able to complete it. If you try accessing a closed survey, you will see the following error message: "The survey window for this access code is closed. Sorry, there are no surveys you can take right now." (Figure 1.)
