The questions cover a range of topics, including positive emotions, relationships with others, and sense of purpose.The results of the survey can provide valuable insights into the emotional and psychological wellbeing of students, and can inform the development of interventions or programs to promote student wellbeing.

Unique to the BounceTogether platform, schools can compare their own results to a large sample giving them more perspective compared to what you will find anywhere else.


The Teacher Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire (TSWQ) is designed to assess the subjective wellbeing of teachers within the school environment. In contrast to many studies that predominantly focus on negative indicators like stress and burnout, the TSWQ aims to address the positive aspects of teachers’ functioning at work. This includes exploring positive affect and prosocial relationships, acknowledging the crucial role these factors play in fostering teachers’ success and maintaining their overall health and wellbeing. The survey offers a holistic perspective on teacher subjective wellbeing, contributing to a more comprehensive understanding of the factors that influence their work satisfaction and positive functioning.
