The CIS Network is focused on collecting credible evidence using common measures so that programs can work together to amplify existing strengths and address challenge areas.
What We Do
Deans for Impact is currently working with thirteen programs to gather evidence of teacher-candidate knowledge and skills, and program performance. Data collected through the Common Indicators System Network empowers participating programs to engage in cross-institutional learning and program improvement. Together, this network aims to achieve three goals:
- Improve data uniformity and comparability across programs
- Support study into promising practices in educator preparation
- Contribute to the evidence base on educator preparation
In 2017-2018, the CIS Network collected data on more than 3,500 teacher candidates, 400 program graduates, and 100 employers across four common indicators.
