Teacher Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire (TSWQ)

This measure is for adultsThis is a free measure

The TSWQ measures teacher wellbeing across two subscales: school connectedness and teaching efficacy. The subscales can be used independently or combined to create an overall wellbeing score. Teachers rank eight positive statements on an 8-point Likert scale representing frequency the statement  is true in their life: For example, “I am a successful teacher” or “I feel like people at this school care about me” (Measure and User Guide, n.d., n.p.). Tyler Renshaw’s Student Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire can be used with this questionnaire for greater continuity across populations.
