Looking Ahead to 2016, NCTQ Continues Data Collection Efforts
The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) has re-engaged its data collection efforts in preparation for its 2016 Teacher Prep Review—scheduled for an October 2016 release. In an e-mail message to programs throughout the country, NCTQ has sent both an overview of the changes for the 2016 review and an itemized data request for each program, requesting that institutions notify NCTQ if they plan to comply with the request by April 20.
Several programs have already notified AACTE that they will not provide NCTQ with the information requested, as previous reviews have proven to be controversial. Remember that AACTE has developed resources to assist members in determining how to proceed with NCTQ’s request. We encourage members to consult with program faculty and university leadership in making such determinations.
AACTE will continue monitoring the 2016 review and provide updates to members as they become available.
