1 California Standards Implementation Teacher Survey October 2015 Thank you for taking this survey endorsed by the California State Board of Education and California Department of Education. Its purpose is to learn more about your experiences implementing California s English Language Arts and mathematics standards. Results from the survey will help state leaders learn more about the ways the California standards are affecting classroom instruction and professional development. Your privacy is important to us. To reach a representative sample of California teachers, WestEd and Civis Analytics are working with a consumer research firm that uses a proprietary list of contact information for teachers in the state. Results of the survey will be reported only in summary form so that neither individuals nor their schools can be identified. This is not an evaluation of any program or individual. All respondents who complete the survey will receive a $10 Amazon gift card. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. 1
