What is the SMILE Study?

Our study focuses on the development of children's self-regulation skills and motivation during elementary school years. We're interested in teachers' perspectives of children's classroom behaviors and experiences.

  1. An online survey to learn about your student's classroom experiences (40-45 minutes, compensation is $40).

  2. If more than one student in your classroom participates in the SMILE Study, you will receive an additional survey (20-25 minutes, compensation is $20).

Who is eligible?

  • Teachers with a student currently enrolled in the SMILE Study. If your student is enrolled, you will receive an email from regarding survey completion.
