The purpose of this study was to examine the impact on program improvement of systematically gathering P-12 student learning data over a 5-year period. This study was completed over 5 academic years (2008-2009 to 2012-2013) in a teacher preparation program in northwest Oregon. Data were gathered from two student teaching experiences of teacher candidates during the fall and spring semesters of their practicum experience. The candidates were completing either a 10-month master of arts in teaching (MAT) program or a 4-year, undergraduate licensure program. To these ends, the most gratifying finding is that candidates can demonstrate a positive impact on student learning that is generally equivalent for P-12 students of all ethnicities and learning needs.
