Visual Scaling to Improve Organizational Decisions in Educator Preparation: Effectively Comparing Apples and Oranges
Francis, Raymond W.; Deschaine, Mark E.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Association of Teacher Educators (Las Vegas, NV, Feb 17-20, 2018)
One of the largest challenges in educator preparation in higher education is the effective use of data for actionable and meaningful decision making about programs for current and future educators, administrators, and educational leaders. Within programs there are many types of students. These may include elementary, secondary, special education, foreign language, social studies, science, literacy, health, school level administrators, district administrators, curriculum leaders, and many others based on school and program. However, in all instances the program (i.e. college, university, school, etc.) is charged with using data in a meaningful manner to guide program decisions, make revisions to curriculum and clinical experiences, and determine the overall quality of the program. Visual Scaling provides an effective solution, and is a process whereby goals and expectations are clearly articulated, and baseline and performance assessments are compared against the expected level of performance. A bibliography is included.
