Faculty Forum: Assessing Teacher Prep Program

Teacher Prep at UNC

UNC’s Education Innovation Institute is working with the University of Colorado and the
Department of Higher Education to help establish a database in which educator
preparation programs can be validly linked to the K-12 educators they send out into the
field.

This database is needed to comply with SB 10-036 and SB 11-245, two bills that require
educator preparation programs to be assessed in part on the basis of the academic success
of students taught in K-12 classrooms by graduates of each prep program.

This lunch forum will provide an opportunity for participants to:

  • Learn more about the statutes requiring prep programs to be linked to K-12 student
    outcomes
  • Ask questions about steps the Colorado Department of Higher Education is taking to
    comply with the statutes
  • Provide input on how to best measure the impact of teacher prep programs on K-12
    student outcomes
