SAS & UNC jointly announced a project that aims to increase the number and quality of NC public school teachers by tracking the performance of teachers once they’ve left UNC System colleges of education.
To identify factors that create more successful teachers, SAS and UNC created the public dashboard that shows research and trend data on the performance of North Carolina’s public school educators.
Built with SAS data visualization software, the interactive online tool enables citizens to analyze and display data on the UNC system’s efforts to prepare more and higher-quality teachers and school leaders for the state’s public schools. The database tracks employment outcomes and retention of beginning teachers who work in North Carolina’s public schools.
The dashboard is also useful for analyzing the impact of teacher-preparation program graduates on PK-12 student learning, measures associated with national accreditation and other outcome-based indicators.
