This latest poll comes amid a major overhaul by the Government of teachers' salaries, which will see pay linked to performance in the classroom.
Under the reforms, due to come into effect from this autumn, in the first five years of a teachers' career, increases to their salary will be tied to how successful they are at their job, rather than their length of service.
The move has been opposed by a number of teaching unions as this type of performance-related pay is already in place for more experienced teachers.
Many teachers are in favour of linking their pay to pupils' results and progress in the classroom, according to a poll.
But it also suggests that a significant proportion think that salary increases should be based on how long they have been in the profession.
The survey, commissioned by the Sutton Trust, asked more than 1,100 state schoolteachers for their views on pay and pay rises.
