Information for raters

The 360° Reflection Tool was developed to support principals and other school leaders reflect, and gather feedback, on the leadership behaviours they exhibit in their daily practice. This page has information for people nominated to rate a principal or school leader’s performance.

Have you been nominated to complete a 360° Reflection Tool survey?

Participants choose raters that they think will give accurate feedback for their development. The survey has been designed to give school leaders an idea of their strengths and areas for development in relation to the Australian Professional Standard for Principals.

Raters are nominated by the participants undertaking the survey process. This means that they have personally selected you as someone they would like to receive feedback from as part of the survey process.

Participants are advised to contact raters before entering their details via our survey site, to let them know that the request is legitimate, and to give their raters an idea of why they are undertaking the survey process.

Is it anonymous?

Your responses are kept secure and anonymous. Rater responses are aggregated into rater categories and only summary responses are included in the Feedback Report. Anonymous rater comments will be captured verbatim in the report.

All answers are stored securely on Korn Ferry's external servers. Except for a participants’ Line Manager, survey data will be analysed at a group level. Aggregated data reports will be provided to the participant. If you are still concerned, please contact the survey administrator [email protected] or 03 9631 0339.

Can I choose not to participate?

If you feel you don’t know the participant well enough, please still attempt the survey, answering the questions to the best of your ability. Please only respond to questions where you have experienced or witnessed the participant's working behaviour. Please note that our system will only include your feedback if you have met the minimum response threshold.

If you do not want to participate, please contact the participant directly and let them know you would like to be removed from the survey process so that they can nominate another rater. After notifying the participant, email the survey administrator and we will remove you from the system.
