    Survey: High-stakes tests and Teacher Stress

    Dear Sir or Madame,

    My name is Georgia Vraketta and I am a postgraduate student at the University of Leicester, studying Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). I am currently in the process of conducting my thesis, which considers the effects of high-stakes testing on teacher stress, motivation and student achievement.

    I would appreciate your participation by completing the questionnaire attached to this e-mail. The survey includes questions about your personal details, your experiences as a teacher, and your beliefs about high-stakes tests, that is tests with significant consequences for the test taker, such as graduation, university or college admission, scholarship, promotion, and so forth.

    Participation in this study is voluntary, and you have the right to withdraw at any time without penalty. You also have the right to avoid answering questions that make you feel uncomfortable. The questionnaire should not take more than fifteen (15) minutes to complete.
    Please try to answer the questionnaire openly and honestly. Your participation in this study will not affect your job status in any way. All data will be collected anonymously and used by me for academic purposes only.

    If you would like to participate in this study, please click on the following link:
    https://www.survey.bris.ac.uk/leicester/gv_high-stakes-tests-and-teacher-stress

    Additionally, I would be grateful if you could forward this e-mail to your peers and colleagues who teach English as a First, Foreign, or Second Language.

    If you have any further questions regarding this project or your participation in it, please feel free to contact me at: EMAIL REMOVED

    I apologize in advance if this thread is irrelevant to you. If it is, could you please tell me where to post it?

    Yours faithfully,
    Georgia Vraketta

    The link you posted takes me to a Microsoft Outlook login page, not a survey.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please try to select the link and copy-paste it in the address bar. I don't know why it doesn't work when you just click on it!

    The links in posts #3 and #4 now work. I've completed the survey.
