Learning and Support

These resources and activities help CSU campuses deepen their ability to apply data and improve educator preparation programs.

Learning Opportunities

How prepared do your teacher candidates feel as they exit your program to meet the challenges they will face in their future classrooms? Who is feeling best prepared and supported, in what ways and under what conditions?

These are the types of questions that can be explored through the DataView Dashboard.  EdQ is here to help your faculty and staff to explore these and other questions and inform improvement efforts. We provide one-on-one or group virtual and in-person learning sessions, coaching and facilitation for the following:

  • Dashboard introduction for first-time users
  • Guided inquiry of campus results focused on specific topics of interest
  • Launching and supporting continuous improvement cycles using DataView and other data sources.
  • Individual coaching for leaders planning data conversations
