(UTESS) Utah Teacher Education Student Survey & (UTEES) Utah Teacher Education Employer Survey
The Utah Teacher Education Student Survey (UTESS) is an evaluation designed to measure a teacher candidate’s confidence and preparation in the classroom throughout their collegiate experience. The UTESS is a self-assessment that students perform upon admission to their program, after graduation, and within their first and third years of teaching. The UTESS is designed to show growth over time and is aligned with UETS. The UTESS is measured on a four-point scale ranging from “Not at All” to “Exceptionally.”
The Utah Teacher Education Employer Survey (UTEES) is the same at the UTESS, but it is completed by the teacher candidate’s employer during the candidate’s second year on the job. The UTEES is identical to the UTESS in all other areas.
