This research is taking place as a partnership between James Cook University and The Diocese of Townsville Catholic Education. In this research we are developing a questionnaire that can be used by teachers to self-assess the teaching practices that might be of benefit to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The questionnaire currently contains 66 items and by you answering the questions today, we will be able to perform statistical analyses which will help us to determine which ones to keep and which ones to eliminate.

This survey is done anonymously. The information from it is only used for statistical analysis. It is not used to measure your performance or to compare schools. Your answers are not tied to your name. By accepting to participate, you are consenting to complete an 66 item questionnaire that has been produced by Associate Professor Brian Lewthwaite at James Cook University.
