2015-2016 GLOBE Teacher Survey Results

The Evaluation Working Group has recently shared with the community the results of the 2015 survey that was sent to GLOBE teachers. The results from this survey, along with the results from the Annual Partner Survey, provide us with information as to how to better support teachers.

Background: The survey was first sent in 2015, to the regional offices and the teachers directly. It was re-sent again in 2016, with a total of 339 responses collected.
 
Purpose: to find out how the program actually works in schools, from teachers

• outcomes teachers want to be able to document;
• outcomes that teachers have seen from implementing GLOBE;

We want to hear from you!

The Evaluation Working Group would like to hear from you. Please email help@globe.gov with the following:

  • existing student assessment and program evaluation tools that can be shared with other members of the GLOBE community; and
  • existing data that partners have from their studies on program effectiveness, including both short-term results (for example, student gains in learning, interests, motivation, and social-emotional development, or teacher outcomes) and longitudinal studies (for example, related to improved graduation rates, entry to postsecondary education, and career-related outcomes).
