This survey is to examine the different ways in which teachers respond to students and understand how students learn. We are trying to determine implications for teacher training and development. Your results will be very helpful in crafting teacher development efforts to help students succeed in school.

Your participation in this survey is completely optional and non-binding. You are agreeing to participate and understand that you will receive no monetary benefits or any gain and the results will be completely anonymous. You may choose to leave the survey at any time and your results will not be used if you do not give permission to do. There will be no repercussions if you do not complete the survey.

Results of the survey will be posted on this site after December, 2014. Results will be analyzed and compared to search for patterns of response. These patterns will be shared through article publications and presentations. However, individual responses will not be shared, and the data will be aggregated in order to analyze it.
