NTIP Survey Tool for Boards Companion Guide

Overview
The Teaching Policy and Standards Branch (TPSB) has
developed streamlined survey templates for beginning
teachers, mentors, and principals linked to the core goals
of NTIP.
The intent of these survey templates is to provide
interested boards with a practical tool that they can use
and adapt to help measure the impact of the New
Teacher Induction Program (NTIP) in their district.
Boards are not required to use the survey templates, nor
are they required to share internal data they gather with
TPSB.
The templates reflect generic NTIP mentoring activities and learning designs and we encourage boards
to customize their surveys to suit local program designs.

Current NTIP Data Collection


The chart below illustrates how TPSB works in collaboration with external researchers and board NTIP
teams to gather both qualitative and quantitative data regarding NTIP using a variety of tools. The NTIP
Survey Tool is in grey as unlike the other data collection tools, board participation is optional.

We look forward to learning about how this streamlined tool will be customized by boards to assist with
their data collection and inform the design of the NTIP supports they offer. We encourage boards to
share how they are adapting these templates and/or utilizing data tools they have developed internally on
our Mentoring Moments NING at: http://mentoringmoments.ning.com.
By triangulating data and research from a variety of sources, our shared goal is to measure the impact of
NTIP in order to directly inform program design and to best meet the learning needs of beginning
teachers and ultimately their students.

(5) Information for Board NTIP Steering Committee


Question (5) on the Beginning Teacher and Mentor surveys / Question (4) on the Principal survey

Intended as useful qualitative information for Board NTIP teams regarding communication and future
learning needs

Boards may have additional questions they wish to include

(6) Demographics (optional)


Question (6) on the Beginning Teacher and Mentor surveys / Question (5) on the Principal survey

In large boards this demographic information may provide useful trend data (e.g., differences in
accessing NTIP supports for 2nd year teachers)

In smaller boards, confidentiality concerns may arise (e.g., if there are only 5 beginning teachers
completing the survey they may feel easily identified)

Boards are encouraged to modify as per their local conditions and needs

We look forward to your feedback about this NTIP Survey Tool and again we encourage boards to share
how they are adapting these templates and/or utilizing data tools they have developed internally on our
Mentoring Moments NING at: http://mentoringmoments.ning.com.
