2022 Tennessee Educator Survey

The Tennessee Educator Survey (TES) is the most important annual survey used to understand the experience of educators across Tennessee. Each year, the department and Tennessee Education Research Alliance at Vanderbilt University (TERA) gather this information to empower stakeholders and decision-makers across the state to better meet the needs of teachers. Over 40,000 educators participated in the 2022 survey. Learn more about the 2022 Tennessee Educator Survey through the Tennessee Educator Survey 2022 Overview.

Completion of this survey is voluntary, and participants may choose not to answer any questions within the survey. Individual responses are confidential and will not under any circumstances be shared or released.  Schools and districts with at least 45% participation rate receive aggregate results so informed decisions can be made at these local levels.  The department will share aggregated school-level results with school and district leaders this summer, and will make all results publicly available later this summer.
