Dear World Language Colleague,

You are being asked to participate in this research study because you are a World Language methods instructor, teacher candidate, in-service teacher, or administrator. You are invited to participate in a survey on world language curriculum, assessment and instruction. This study aims to examine use of research to inform instructional decisions.

The purpose of this research study is to gather feedback to inform the profession on the use of research based theory and practice in the light of current World Language teacher preparation requirements.  Results of this survey will guide professional development initiatives to address needs in curriculum, assessment and instruction. Therefore, it is essential to seek feedback representing all stakeholders in the World Language profession.

If you agree to participate, you will be asked 10-15 questions that should take you no more than 15-20 minutes in an anonymous online survey. Your participation in this online survey is voluntary. Usernames or remote computer names will not be retained, stored, or used in data analysis or reporting by those involved in the data analysis and reporting. You can stop at any time by exiting the survey. The survey does not ask for any information that would identify who the responses belong to.

If you are a CUNY student, your willingness to participate in this research study, or your request to withdraw from the research study, will not affect your grades or academic standing with CUNY. You may refuse to answer any questions that you do not want to answer and still remain in the study.
