During the literature review phase of the TiLL project, the university partners identified a number of historic psychological profiling tools. These tools were chosen because they met the project’s criteria: tools for self-evaluation of teacher efficacy. The TiLL self-assessment tool has been derived from these tools. We are truly ‘standing on the shoulders of giants’. To acknowledge this history and the provenance of the TiLL self-assessment tool, we have put a link to the instruments on this page so that you can analyse them in your own time. You may decide to look at each of these tools before completing the TiLL exercise yourself.

Please remember that the TiLL project was set up to find a contemporary way for teachers across Europe to identify systematically their own training needs, so that they can become even better facilitators of lifelong learning. Those who choose to delve deeper by using the tools listed below, will discover more about themselves and their own lifelong journey into self-awareness and effectiveness.

The tools are presented here in no particular order. There is no hierarchy in the list. Our research partners have suggested below some further links which can help explain the tools if you wish to pursue your learning even further.
