Take The Survey! Need Help? Response Rate

THE 2015 TELL KENTUCKY Survey is now open through March 31!

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The TELL Survey materials have been shipped via USPS and are addressed to a KEA Point of Contact in each school. Packets were scheduled to arrive the week prior to the opening of the survey. It has come to our attention that some schools may not yet have received their packet of materials- please contact the Help Desk 1-866-301-2454  Extension 15 to receive a replacement set of codes right away or you can wait until the US Mail has delivered today to be sure your packet is not still in the mail. 


1. How to complete the survey:

  • If you have your confidential access code, please click on the "Take the Survey" button located above.
  • If you do not have an access code, please check with your KEA TELL Representative to obtain a confidential access code that was sent in the packet of TELL materials to every school or you can contact the Help Desk ( or 1-866-301-2454, extension 15) and ask for a new code.
  • If your entire school has not yet received the TELL packet of materials, the KEA TELL Representative  should contact the Help Desk ( or 1-866-301-2454, extension 15) and  request a replacement set of codes for your school.

2. KEA TELL Representatives and Principals: If the “head count” for your school is inaccurate you may contact the help desk (Click on the “NEED HELP” button located above) to get your head counts adjusted as this may impact your response rate.

A host of stakeholder groups representing teachers, superintendents, community and business (known as the TELL Kentucky Partners) collaboratively work with the New Teacher Center (NTC) to conduct the TELL survey since 2011.
