Data Literacy: Are Teachers Prepared?

Sat, April 9, 4:05 to 6:05pm, Marriott Marquis, Floor: Level Two, Marquis Salon 4


Evaluating teacher preparation is timely given heightened attention at federal, state, and local levels to teacher quality (NCATE, 2010; Darling-Hammond, Amrein-Beardsley, Haertel, & Rothstein, 2012). Furthermore, our accrediting bodies encourage the incorporation of alumni and employer satisfaction data in the program evaluation process. Since 2012, through surveys and focus groups, colleagues at our institution have collected feedback on teacher education programs from current students, alumni, and local school professionals. This paper reports data from two separate research studies, each of which uncovered valuable insight for teacher preparation programs on preparing teachers in the areas of data literacy and classroom assessment. Such data provide direction for program faculty as they design new assessments and assessment plans and implement program improvement.
