The National Teacher Survey (NTS) is a comprehensive nationally representative survey conducted by the Queen Rania Foundation for Education and Development (QRF) in coordination with Jordan’s Ministry of Education (MoE) as part of the Evidence-Driven Results in Learning project (EDRiL), with funding from the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DfID) and Canada.
The survey explored Jordanian teachers’ educational backgrounds, experience, training, attitudes, pedagogical practices, challenges and experiences serving refugee students in various contexts. School and classroom climates were also explored. The survey design and instruments were aligned with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS), allowing comparisons to be made with other TALIS-participating countries. As such, some of the survey research questions were aligned with the TALIS research questions, while other questions related to policy-relevant issues for Jordan’s education system, outlined below.
