A new study by the Education Policy Initiative at Carolina (EPIC) examining the connection between the National Council on Teacher Quality's (NCTQ) Teacher Prep Review standards and actual teacher performance finds that graduates of teacher prep programs with higher NCTQ ratings are more effective on average than graduates of programs with lower ratings, no matter if the measure of effectiveness is student test scores or teacher evaluations. The study, which was conducted independently of NCTQ and paid for by the Teacher Quality Research Initiative at the University of North Carolina System, focuses on the relationship between NCTQ's program ratings and the performance of program graduates in North Carolina classrooms.
