In the spring of 2015, Panorama Education launched the Panorama Teacher Survey to give principals and school and district leaders a tool to collect feedback from teachers. The survey is designed to spark and support productive conversations between teachers and school leaders about professional learning, school communication, school climate, and other key topics.
The Panorama Teacher Survey gathers feedback from teachers about their perceptions of their professional learning opportunities, their confidence in the classroom, their relationships with colleagues, students’ families, and the school leadership, and their feelings about the school’s climate.
Similar to Panorama's other survey instruments, you may customize the survey by selecting the scales that you feel matter most to your community.
The survey was developed under the leadership of Dr. Hunter Gehlbach, Associate Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Director of Research at Panorama Education. Dr. Gehlbach is a leading survey methodologist and education researcher and a former high school social studies teacher.
At Panorama, we believe that all educators deserve the best tools available, which means that we are committed to keeping the survey free and open-source.

"Using the Panorama Teacher Survey this spring was easy and extremely user-friendly. We're going to use the feedback data from teachers to create our Continuous School Improvement plan. I can already see how deep our conversations are going to be about the reports to drive school improvement in the fall."
