ABOUT TELL Tennessee
The 2013 TELL Tennessee Survey will be the second statewide survey of school based licensed educators and will use the same survey instrument as used in 2011 where more than 77% percent of the state’s educators responded! For information about the previous survey, including school, district and state results, click here.
Previous findings as well as nationwide research show that teaching conditions are positively associated with improved student achievement and teacher retention. The TELL Tennessee Survey will provide educators with data, tools and direct support to facilitate school improvement. TELL Tennessee includes questions on the following topics:
• Community Engagement and Support
• Teacher Leadership
• School Leadership
• Managing Student Conduct
• Use of Time
• Professional Development
• Facilities and Resources
• Instructional Practices and Support
• New Teacher Support
Every school that reaches the minimum response rate threshold of 50% (and a minimum of 5 respondents) will be able to use its own data in school improvement planning. The TELL Tennessee Survey will be administered over a four-week window. Anyone can view the live response rate tracker for every school by visiting this website during the survey window.
