About TELL Oregon

TELL Oregon is now open. You may take the survey anytime between February 1st - 29th.

Educator letters with access codes should have arrived at your school by now. Please plan on sharing your voice about the presence of teaching conditions in your school. Your perceptions are a valued component to district and school improvement planning to make sure every teacher has the conditions in place to produce their best work. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the help desk by clicking on the help desk button above. We thank you for your time.

The Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning (TELL) Oregon survey is an anonymous statewide survey of licensed school-based educators to assess teaching conditions at the school, district and state level. Research from around the country shows that teaching conditions are positively associated with improved student achievement and teacher retention. The TELL Oregon results will provide educators with data, tools and direct support to facilitate school improvement.  

On January 15, 2016 - The New Teacher Center conducted a pre-survey webinar. The interactive meeting guided attendees through details about the 2016 TELL Oregon Survey, including background, key talking points, and FAQs. You can view a recording of the webinar by clicking here. To log in provide your name and (school, district, or organization with which you are affiliated) along with your email address.


“We want to hear from you. As an educator, you are the most critical link to student success.

Your feedback is essential to our ability to monitor and improve teaching and learning conditions.”

— Governor Kate Brown
