Welcome to My Survey

Dear Participant,

I am a graduate student at St. Joseph’s College currently working on my Master’s Thesis and need your help in conducting my study.  The goal of this study is to collect data regarding teaching methods.  The purpose of this survey is to answer my research question, “How do math educators’ experiences with the Common Core affect their methods of teaching?”.  The conclusions of this study could in the future offer helpful insight to educators and administrators regarding adjustments in teaching methods to benefit our students. 

Your participation in this research study is voluntary.  If you decide not to participate in this study or if you withdraw from participating at any time, you will not be penalized.  You have the right to skip any questions that you feel uncomfortable answering. 

Please be aware that all data will be obtained anonymously and individual information will remain confidential.  All data is stored in a password protected electronic format.  To help protect your confidentiality, the survey will not contain information that will personally identify you or your school district.  The results of this study will be used for scholarly purposes only.

It is not expected that you will experience any distress as a result of completing this survey, but if you do, or if you have any questions about the study, please contact myself (lopezmariac@live.com) or my supervisor Dr. Elana Reiser (ereiser@sjcny.edu).  If you have questions regarding the ethics of this study, you may contact the IRB chairperson, Dr. Dominique Treboux (dtreboux@sjcny.edu).

Thank you for your time and participation, it is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, 

Maria C. Lopez
St. Joseph’s College
