EdPrep Dashboards

The EdPrep Dashboard is the result of a multi-year collaboration from many researchers, EPPs, State Departments of Ed, and School Districts.

The metrics were selected to represent the common, top priority measurements of the effectiveness of EPPs. The visualizations were designed to present those metrics in the simplest, most informative and actionable ways. It is designed to be implemented by any educator preparation organization, district, or state.

The EdPrep Dashboard development team followed four pillars of design to select high value visuals taking advantage of readily available data across EPPs, states, and districts:

Use Cases

The Crocus EdPrep Dashboard modules are based on prioritized stakeholder use cases. 

For the EdPrep Challenge, the dashboards focus on two critical areas of programmatic data: Candidate Recruitment and Performance.

EPP Leadership requires easy access to up-to-date enrollment data. Through the Recruit: Enrollment Module, EPPs can evaluate programmatic and demographic trends, analyze program equity, and determine data-driven recruitment goals for upcoming application periods.

Faculty members require concise and accurate data of their candidate's performance on program assessments and observations. Through the Perform: Candidate Performance Module, faculty are able to analyze and identify opportunities for programmatic improvement.
