The TELL MASS Survey is a statewide survey of school based licensed educators to determine if they have the supports necessary for effective teaching. The online survey is administered in Massachusetts every other year. During the four-week window the survey is administered, educators may complete the survey anytime, from any Internet location, using an anonymous password.

The TELL Mass Survey is anonymous and there are no identifiers included in the database that could link responses to a specific teacher.
A host of stakeholder groups, representing teachers, superintendents, community and businesses, collaboratively work with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and New Teacher Center (NTC) to conduct the survey.
