APLU's Analytic Framework receives a supplemental grant from NSF

Description

APLU has received an NSF RETA Supplement grant for almost $300,000 for the further development of the Analytic Framework (AF) which includes developing an on-line survey tool based on the AF; field-testing the AF with selected institutions during late Spring and Summer; and revising the AF. An additional group of SMTI institutions will then complete the revised AF and upload program data and evidence of program impact and success into a database to share with other institutions in late Fall. The AF is organized across the recognized continuum of teacher preparation and development: recruitment, preparation (including pedagogical and content-knowledge and clinical/field experiences), induction and mentoring of beginning teachers, and professional development. Important cross-cutting elements, such as school partnerships, use of technology, program evaluation and research, are embedded into the framework.
