The TELL Mass Survey is anonymous and there are no identifiers included in the database that could link responses to a specific teacher.
ABOUT TELL MASS
Research from across the country shows that positive teaching and learning conditions are essential for student success and teacher retention and that educator’s own voices provide critical feedback on whether those conditions exist. That is why educational leaders are urging every school-based licensed educator in the state to complete the TELL MASS (Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning in Massachusetts) survey. The Commonwealth is extending this opportunity to all 404 districts. Results will be available to all educators in May of this year.
The Department and our school improvement Advisory Council are urging every school-based licensed educator in the state to complete the TELL MASS survey. This is the second statewide opportunity for all educators in Massachusetts to provide valuable input on key education issues such as available time, facilities and resources; community engagement and support; instructional practices and more. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education does not intend for this survey to be used as part of the Educator Evaluation system. This survey is to collect perceptual data on the working conditions, and school climate and culture in order to promote collaborative discussions between educators and school leadership within schools and districts. By promoting positive working conditions, our goal is to support positive school cultures for both staff and students, ultimately leading to increasing student achievement.
The survey will be available online starting March 12 and ending April 13, 2012. You should be able to complete the survey in 20 to 30 minutes.
The survey is completely voluntary, confidential, and anonymous! School based educators received their letters with the individual anonymous access codes the week of March 5th.
