					                     Coaching Survey Example
As you are aware, school districts in the State of Alabama evaluate the work of all certificated
personnel including content coaches. One aspect of the evaluation of math specialists/coaches
includes the use of surveys to gather information from instructional staff about the math coach.
This information is used to assist in assessing the effectiveness of the math specialist/coach.

Because you are an instructional staff member in a school served by the math specialist/coach
named on the front cover, you have been randomly selected to complete this survey. It will take
approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Your responses are important and will remain
confidential. Therefore, do not place your name on this survey. When you have finished, return
the survey in the enclosed envelope to the contact person named on the cover of this survey. If
you have any questions, you may call the contact person.

Please respond to all statements by circling one number or letter to the right of the
statement. Respond from your own knowledge about this math specialist using the
following rating scale with the corresponding response choices:

                                         1 - rarely
                                         2 - sometimes
                                         3 - usually
