Building the Plane as You Fly


Presenters will share a research framework for investigating the efficacy of a teacher preparation program redesign and describe a design-based research approach to examining multiple data sources as a means of measuring the effectiveness of a revised teacher preparation program. A conceptual framework matrix, based on Kirkpatrick's model of evaluation (Kirkpatrick & Kayser-Kirkpatrick, 2014), was created by faculty to examine four levels of teacher preparation (candidate content knowledge, candidate skill acquisition, candidate skill application, and impact on K-12 student learning).
