Mandinach and Gummer Gave Keynote at Annual CAEP Conference

Dr. Ellen Mandinach (WestEd) and Edith Gummer (Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation) gave the keynote address at the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) Annual Conference on September 29th.

The keynote is entitled “Data and Educator Preparation Programs:  Data for Programmatic Continuous Improvement and Data Literacy for Teachers.”  Drs. Mandinach and Gummer discussed how educator preparation programs can use data to facilitate their process of continuous improvement.  They also introduced a new construct, Data Literacy For Teachers, and discussed why it is important for educator preparation programs to include instruction on all sources of data use, not just assessment results.

Mandinach and Gummer were available for a book signing for their new book entitled Data Literacy For Educators:  Making It Count in Teacher Preparation and Practice.
