Evaluation of the Teacher Leadership and Compensation Program and Teacher Support Teacher Survey

Understanding Your Participation in the Survey

Welcome to the 2017 survey for Iowa teachers about teacher leadership, professional development, and the Teacher Leadership and Compensation (TLC) program.

All Iowa teachers have been invited to participate. School and district leaders are also being surveyed with a different set of questions.

This survey is strictly confidential with no way for the AIR study team to track the responses back to individuals who complete the survey.

Online completion of the survey will take approximately 15 minutes. If you prefer, you may complete the survey in multiple sessions. Click “Save” at the bottom of any survey page and you will be provided with instructions on how to log back into the survey.

Your completion of this survey gives you the opportunity to reflect on and share your opinions on the professional development you have participated in and the supports you have received from your district or school. You will provide valuable information that may help improve teacher leadership and professional development efforts in Iowa.

Each week, for all five weeks of survey administration, you will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win one of three iPad mini 2s or one of ten $50 Amazon gift cards.

There are no foreseeable risks associated with your participation in this study.
