The American Teacher Panel (ATP) and the American School Leader Panel (ASLP) are nationally representative samples of educators who provide their feedback on issues of educational policy and practice.

Using the ATP and ASLP, researchers can take the pulse of the nation's educators on a regular basis—getting timely answers to questions surrounding policies like the Common Core Standards, student assessments, and measures of teacher and school leader effectiveness.

The success of such policies depends on the knowledge and efforts of principals and teachers, and these panels are bringing educators' perspectives to the forefront of decisionmaking.
