The goal of integrating of TVAAS training into pre-service teacher training programs is to increase understanding of value-added data in order to assist pre-service teachers in using data to target the unique needs of students. The project includes the creation of eLearning modules which have been used by 1,250 college professors and students in teacher preparation curriculum. The resources were highlighted by the National Council of Teacher Quality as outstanding resources for increasing data literacy. Links to the modules can be found below. In addition, research has been conducted to investigate the factors that impact the performance of teacher program completers once they enter the K-12 classroom. Two white papers and a study entitled Advanced Analytics can be accessed through the links below.
