The Foundation for Technology and Engineering Education (FTEE) - Dugger/Gerrish Endowment, in partnership with the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) has commissioned a study to determine to what extent students in United States public schools use a tactile hands-on process of problem solving involving "doing" in their elementary, middle, and high school courses. We are currently conducting the second of four rounds of this study. We ask that you participate even if you participated in the first round.

To start the survey, please follow the appropriate link:
For the purposes of this study, the definition of "doing" is: A tactile/hands-on process of problem solving starting with human needs and wants that leads to the
principles of innovation such as designing, making/building, producing, and evaluating.

We ask that you respond to three demographic questions and answer Yes or No to 13 statements dealing with "Doing Based Learning." The survey will not take longer than five minutes to complete. The statements are based on Next Generation Science Standards, Standards for Technological Literacy, and Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.

Your input will not affect what you are currently teaching. There are no correct or incorrect responses. We are trying to determine what types of activities your students do in class. A space is provided for you to make comments, if you choose to do so.

This survey is totally voluntary. Please complete this survey before April 15, 2015 to be eligible for an iPad Mini drawing that will be held no later than April 30, 2015. Congratulations to Ms. Taylor, an elementary teacher from Murray, Utah for winning the iPad Mini from the first round. To participate in the drawing, follow the prompt at the end of the survey.

Thank you in advance for your assistance. If you have any questions or concerns, please address them to

Thank you in advance for your valuable participation in this research!
