Educator Preparation

Continuous Improvement Efforts

ESE's continuous improvement cycle improves the quality of our work.

Periodically, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) assesses the effectiveness of the work of the Educator Preparation Team through a variety of different means. The Ed Prep Team is committed to their own continuous improvement efforts by recognizing and responding to key trends and learnings identified through feedback, research, and surveys.

Overview of Research Efforts

Focused research questions drive our progress. ESE is guided by three strategies set by the Office of Planning and Research (OPR):

  • Produce insightful, timely information on key policy issues and program initiatives.
  • Strengthen the use of data and evidence for ESE and the field.
  • Transform practices to more effectively implement ESE's highest priority initiatives.
