The survey contains a total of 17 questions organized into four different skill areas. You may choose to complete one or more of the four sections, or you may take the entire survey. The entire survey may take up to 45 minutes to complete, depending on how long you reflect on each question; however it can take less time and you have the option to save your work as you go and return to finish it at another time.

Each question relates to one competency. Each competency is further explained by several performance indicators and sample illustrations; viewing these can help you better understand what each competency encompasses. In responding to a question, rate the competency’s relevance to your teaching, your current ability in the competency, and the competency’s priority level for you.

In answering the questions, be honest but kind to yourself. As you fill in the survey, keep your current learners or a recent class of students in mind. All professional development is centered around how we, as instructors, can help our adult learners best achieve learning gains and improve their outcomes. The survey is intended to help you determine your current skill levels.

You will have an opportunity to view your results. For the top five-ranking competencies, you have the option to create your own Professional Development Plan, which provides specific, research-based professional development resources. These resources allow you to develop your skills further over the course of a year with the end-goal of helping your learners achieve the greatest learning gains possible.
