Project Overview

IWERC is analyzing data from the Illinois Educator Preparation Profiles (IEPP) system housed at ISBE. The IEPP reports scores for specific teacher preparation programs (e.g., elementary ed, math ed) at higher education institutions across the state. Analyzing IEPP data will shed light on how teacher preparation programs shape teachers’ career trajectories. As such, this work aligns with IWERC’s core project on maintaining a diverse, high-quality early childhood and K-12 workforce.
