The 2013 TELL Kentucky Survey was the second statewide survey of school based licensed educators and used the same survey instrument as used in 2011. To view the results from 2011 for the state, districts and schools, please click on the 'hisotrical' tab llocated at the top of the page.
Previous findings as well as nationwide research show that teaching conditions are positively associated with improved student achievement and teacher retention. The TELL Kentucky Survey will provide educators with data, tools and direct support to facilitate school improvement. TELL Kentucky includes questions on the following topics:
• Community Engagement and Support
• Teacher Leadership
• School Leadership
• Managing Student Conduct
• Use of Time
• Professional Development
• Facilities and Resources
• Instructional Practices and Support
• New Teacher Support
Every school that reaches the minimum response rate threshold of 50% (and a minimum of 5 respondents) will be able to use its own data in school improvement planning. The TELL Kentucky Survey was administered over a four-week window.
