Assessments & Reports


Quick, User-friendly

An assessment takes an adult (school staff member, parent) on average around 10 minutes, and a student around 5 minutes to complete. The user-friendly and elegant design of the assessment forms provide an engaging survey experience - the questions are easy to read, the response buttons easy to click.


The adult assessment is comprised of 52 questions, and the student assessment is 29 questions. Both assess what is going right and what is going wrong, ensuring a complete assessment of wellbeing.


AWE is based on the latest theories of wellbeing and uses empirically validated psychometric measures.

Solutions Focused

An assessment that leads to wellbeing development solutions. The results provide information to inform the development of, and asses the effectiveness of, wellbeing solutions to enhance individual, group and community engagement and wellbeing.

What's in the AWE assessment?

The AWE assessment consists of a collection of validated psychometric scales and scientifically informed questions from the psychology literature that assess various aspects of wellbeing. The AWE assessment covers all major theories of wellbeing, rather than one particular theory or perspective.

The assessment is balanced with regard to the span of assessment (i.e., asking about today, yesterday, last week, in general) consistent with the sensitivity of the constructs measured.

Is the assessment different for an adult compared to a student?

Yes. Adults (school staff, parents) answer the Global Wellbeing module (14 questions), Domain Wellbeing module (10 questions), Work Wellbeing module (if employeed, 19 questions), Resiliance module (3 questions), Health and Lifestyle module (4 questions), and Enabling Wellbeing module (2 questions), making the adult assessment 52 questions in total. Adults also answer some standard demographic questions (8 questions).

Students aged 12-18 answer the Global Wellbeing module (5 questions), the Domain Wellbeing module (5 questions), School Wellbeing module (10 questions), Resiliance module (3 questions), Health and Lifestyle module (4 questions), and Enabling Wellbeing module (2 questions), making the student assessment 29 questions in total. Students also answer some standard demographic questions (4 questions).
