Educator Effectiveness

Continuous Improvement

Both the 2012 Regulations for Educator Licensure and Preparation Program Approval and the program approval process focus on the need for Sponsoring Organizations to establish a continuous improvement system that examines program effectiveness through the compilation and analysis of data, both quantitative and qualitative. The system enables each Sponsoring Organization to reflect upon and assess the design, development, and delivery of its educator preparation programs and ensure that they reflect the mission, vision, and goals of the Sponsoring Organization and that they are aligned with state requirements.

Ongoing collection and analysis of program data drives the continuous improvement process. This continuous improvement cycle results in more effective programs. The below resources are provided by the Department to support continuous improvement.

Continuous improvement cycle described in detail in the section titled, 'What Continuous Improvement Looks Like'
