Preparation and Support for Teachers in Public Schools: Reflections on the First Year of Teaching. Stats in Brief. NCES 2018-143
Bowsher, Amanda; Sparks, Dinah; Hoyer, Kathleen Mulvaney
National Center for Education Statistics
This Statistics in Brief adds to existing research on early-career teachers by presenting findings on their preparation and supports from data from the 2011-12 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS). This brief, like past research, investigates several specific areas of preparation and types of support. For the purposes of this brief, early-career teachers are identified as those teachers who began teaching at any point between the 2007-08 and 2011-12 school years and who completed the first-year preparation and support questions on the 2011-12 SASS Public School Teacher Questionnaire. This Statistics in Brief uses data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) 2011-12 SASS Public School Teacher Questionnaire to investigate the preparation and support provided to teachers during their first year of teaching. Differences discussed in this brief are statistically significant at the p < 0.05 level to ensure that they are larger than might be expected due to sampling variation. No adjustments were made for multiple comparisons.
