Edwin for Ed Prep Overview

The data Edwin provides will help sponsoring organizations make informed decisions about how they can improve upon their work to ensure candidates are ready to support the success of all students. Having access to valid, reliable data can enable programs to measure progress toward long-term goals and simplify state reporting. As organizations analyze the outcomes their completers achieve and their impact on students in Massachusetts, Edwin offers four reports to address a variety of questions:

  • Educator Preparation Program Cohort Pipeline (701): Details the progression through the educator preparation pipeline, including reason for exit and license attainment, for a cohort of candidates.
    • This report will enable users to answer many questions, including:
      • What are a cohort's persistence and completion trends for individual programs?
      • What are the demographic characteristics of program completers?
      • How long do candidates take to complete different programs?

  • MA Public Employment Summary (702): Provides aggregate information about Massachusetts public employment for program completers.
