Middle School Teachers: Your Voice is Needed!

May 15, 2019

Middle School Teachers! Your voice is needed! You are invited to participate in a web-based online survey to develop a reliable and effective instrument that will assess preservice and in-service middle school science teachers’ self-efficacy in teaching engineering practices and applying the engineering design process in the science classroom. The instrument is called “Efficacy to Teach Engineering Practices” (E2TEP). The need for this instrument relates to implementing the current science reform, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) or your state’s adaptation of the NGSS. This is a research project being conducted by Vickie Grant, a doctoral student at Piedmont College in Athens, GA. The survey should take approximately 28 minutes to complete.

Please complete the instrument in one sitting. If answers are not submitted, your progress will not be saved. To save your progress, you must go to the final questions for each section and select "Next" and "Submit" even if you haven't answered each question. If you wish to edit your response after submission, you must keep the final submission screen open and select "edit your response" to finish.

Below you will find a link to the instrument as well as links to my social media platforms. Please share all with middle school science teachers, both preservice and in-service, to take the instrument. Thank you in advance for your help!
