The Teacher Prep Review standards address four critical areas of teacher preparation.

  • selection criteria
  • subject area preparation
  • practice teaching
  • institutional outcomes

The Review's 18 standards are specific and measurable, and are designed to identify the teacher preparation programs most likely to get the best outcomes for their students. Each standard takes us about two years to develop, in collaboration with a technical panel comprising international and domestic experts on teacher education, faculty and deans from schools of education, statistical experts and PK-12 leaders.

Intro to research inventories

Each standard rated this year also has a "book" that contains the proverbial kitchen sink: indicators; general statement of the standard's rationale; detailed statement about research and other support for the standard; a research inventory that categorizes studies that generally bear on the aspect of preparation addressed in the standard; and detailed standard scoring methodology.
