Mathematics Teaching Self-evaluation Tools


You are viewing a limited version of the NCETM’s self-evaluation tools. Any answers you save during this session will be removed after seven days. Log in or sign up to view, and use, the full version of the tools.
Send to printer For the following questions, select the statement which most accurately matches your level of confidence (1 is not confident and 4 is very confident) or choose from the alternatives detailed in the question. You do not have to answer all questions. Your answers will be saved so you can exit and come back to your self-evaluation at any time. Click Save and Results to view the next steps for questions you have answered.
