Recognizing and valuing our differing missions, sizes, locations, and students, we who are educators in both public and independent colleges and universities alike have used and will continue to use data, Ohio teacher licensure standards, systemic reviews, guidelines of learned societies, wisdom of practice, and other evidence to evaluate and strive to maintain high quality teacher education programs in this state.” Signed by Public and Private Chairs for All 50 Institutions

  6. TQP Research Questions 1. Do variables of teacher background, initial preparation, and on-going professional learning relate to teacher practices, student learning and achievement? 2. How do specific elements of teacher preparation and aspects of school contexts impact novice teachers’ development during their first three years of teaching? 3. Do HVATs have characteristics, instructional practices, and understandings that differ from other teachers along the value-added continuum? 4. What specific school contexts are associated with HVA novice and experienced teachers?
