EdPrepLab conducts, collects, and disseminates high-quality research on equity-focused educator preparation that is grounded in the science of learning and development.

EdPrepLab seeks out and highlights successful and productive practices from across teacher and leader preparation, emphasizing research that informs the field and supports programs that are interested in continuous improvement toward ambitious goals. To this end, EdPrepLab will share and occasionally conduct research that links program characteristics to teacher and student outcomes in pk-12 classrooms. 

Additionally, EdPrepLab gathers and supports research that documents program outcomes, such as employer and candidate perceptions of preparation, graduates’ practices in the classroom, and graduates’ performance on performance assessments.
