New Survey Reveals How Teachers Really Feel About Testing



In April of 2015, Professional Educators of Tennessee surveyed Tennessee educators regarding their opinion of standardized testing in the state of Tennessee. The survey was distributed via email to all members and on social media, as well as being made available to all educators on the Professional Educators of Tennessee website.
208 educators completed the survey, with 134 being classroom teachers. Eighty-five percent of educators stated that standardized testing takes up “too much” of classroom instructional time. And, as the state moves to online testing, there appear to be numerous glitches in the testing procedure.
We invite you to read the detailed report, which includes the results of 15 charted questions. If you have additional questions regarding the survey or results, please contact Bethany Bowman at
