The NeuroEducation Confidence Diagnostic (NECD for short) is a free diagnostic tool for helping schools and districts gauge key elements related to teacher efficacy. Developed by the team at The Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning, the NECD measures an educator’s influence, knowledge, and confidence around the science of teaching and learning. It’s for teachers who want to identify gaps in their knowledge and confidence, as well as school and district administrators who want to get an overall picture of the organizational strengths and gaps in learning science knowledge and confidence in classroom practices. The NECD measures the following areas:
  • How much change can teachers affect within the school
  • Teacher’s self reported knowledge of learning science and their confidence to apply it in the classroom
  • Evaluation of learning science scientific concepts and their application
What does your school or district get from the CTTL when they complete the NECD? Take a look at this fictional example from Springsteen Academy.
