  • Insights for Teachers: How teachers and principals of Year 7-10 students use their time

    This is the second 'Insights for Teachers' focusing on TALIS.

    In this 'Insights for Teachers' we report on the activities of New Zealand teachers and principals, and the high levels of job satisfaction they reported in the OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS).

    TALIS asked Year 7-10 teachers how they spent their time for a randomly chosen Year 7-10 class from their current timetable and how much work time they spent on various activities in a recent week. Their principals were asked about how they divided their time over a school year.
