Along with the suspension of classes, the survey conducted by interviewers in schools was interrupted. The directors of the same schools selected for the survey will be asked again by employees of PBS and Danae to allow the survey to be carried out in their area. Interviews at schools, which the interviewers failed to carry out due to the epidemic, are currently planned for the first half of 2020 (the interviews will be conducted with people who will then be attending the final classes). By January 2023, interviewers will contact them twice more, when they are already graduates.
Research with principals and students, conducted through online surveys, continued, but the course of the epidemic was also affected. The state of the epidemic prevented the implementation of this part of the study in schools, with students gathered to fill in an online survey (for example, in the school’s lab IT).
Changes in the project, under which PBS and Danae carry out research, entail changes to the project conducted by IBE, which includes the analysis of collected data. Changes in both projects are agreed in detail by the Ministry of National Education, IBE, PBS and Danae. The implemented solutions are aimed at achieving the assumed goals, excluding the risk of infection of the respondents and preventing the negative effects of the epidemic for research companies and for employees responsible for carrying out research.
