Surveys of P-12 Students or Families for Use in Teacher Evaluations
Surveys of P-12 Students, Families, or Teachers for Use in Principal Evaluations

The New York State Education Department, as part of its implementation of the provisions of Education Law §3012-c regarding annual professional performance reviews (APPR) of classroom teachers and building principals, is pleased to post its list of Surveys of P-12 Students or Families for Use in Teacher Evaluation and its list of Surveys of P-12 Students, Families or Teachers for Use in Principal Evaluation that meet the criteria established in our Request for Qualification (RFQ). This list will be updated periodically as additional applications are submitted and approved.

In selecting a survey or surveys to use in their APPRs, LEAs may enter into an agreement with one or more survey instrument providers for services, in accordance with applicable procurement laws and Education Law §3012-c. These partnership agreement(s) will allow LEAs to collaborate directly with survey instrument providers to develop and support the LEAs’ professional capacity to successfully integrate information from the surveys into their teacher and principal evaluations.  NYSED will not be a party to or responsible for agreements between LEAs and service providers.

Some survey instrument providers listed here may charge a fee to use their survey(s) or to purchase associated implementation support services, while others may not. Some providers also may offer optional services. LEAs should contact survey instrument providers directly to discuss the LEAs’ specific use of the surveys as they relate to their APPR plans and to discuss costs and services associated with the surveys.

The Department will post a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), if applicable, and will continue to update the list as additional survey instrument providers and/or surveys are approved. For information on how surveys may be used in teacher and principal evaluation and other aspects of APPR, you may wish to review Guidance on New York State’s Annual Professional Performance Review Law and Regulations.
