In addition to its analysis of system-wide data, the Consortium also provides customized data on individual schools in CPS. The Consortium has created reports on each school's responses to our biennial survey and each school's progress with helping students succeed in high school.

5 Essentials School Reports
The 5 Essentials were developed by the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research at the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute, in partnership with Chicago Public Schools.
The data in the 5 Essentials School Reports draw from the 2011 My Voice, My School teacher and student surveys. These surveys have also been known as the Student Connection Survey and the Consortium survey. The 2012 5Essentials School Reports are public; however, 2013 reports are available only to principals until later this year.
