Teachers’ Expectations Survey

Use this survey to gather information about teachers’ expectations for student success.

Teachers’ expectations are critical for students’ success. Yet we found that many educators, even those who believe in grade-level standards in theory, do not believe all students can meet this high bar.

Use this survey to learn more about your teachers’ expectations and to build a plan to support them. All students deserve a chance to do grade-level work.

Use the Teachers’ Expectations Survey Scoring Guide to understand the responses.
