2017 Tennessee Educator Survey

District Level Response Rates

School Level Response Rates

The Tennessee Educator Survey is an annual way for the department of education to collect feedback from the educators we serve, and provides valuable information on what's working, what's not, and where we can improve. We believe that Tennessee teachers are experts at their craft, and we want to continue to learn from them.

We thank the more than 38,000 educators who participated in this year's survey. Read the 2017 survey report to learn more about what Tennessee teachers thought about instructional time, evaluation and instructional improvement, and more. Explore the survey results website to review state, district, and school level results in greater depth.
