The Teaching Fellowship program at the Knowles Science Teaching Foundation (KSTF) contracted Horizon Research, Inc. (HRI) to administer a survey to principals, or their designees, of schools in which Fellows teach. The survey was developed by KSTF, with input by HRI, and asked school leaders to rate the Fellow on a number of dimensions, including several aspects of teaching (e.g., knowledge of content, knowledge of how to teach the content) and leadership activities outside the classroom (e.g., serving as a formal coach or mentor to other teachers, designing curriculum/instructional materials). The resulting data shed light on the success of the Teaching Fellowship program from the point of view of school leaders.
