In the summer of 2012, a national survey of over 1,000 formal and informal educators was conducted by the SMD E/PO Cross-Forum K-12 WG to assess who were using NASA resources, what educators were looking for when using NASA resources, and what attracted them to NASA workshops and other educational opportunities.  This survey was conducted by the K-12 Working Group of the NASA Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Education and Public Outreach (E/PO) Forums and distributed through NASA and national education networks.


Three documents are included:

  1. The Executive Summary from the K-12 cross-forum needs assessment survey on Teacher Professional Development and,
  2. The full report (.docx)
  3. The full report (.pdf) available in a 508 version.

There is a lot of useful information to members of the SMD E/PO community.
