Pre-service teachers' data use opportunities during student teaching
TATE Volume 63, Number 1, ISSN 0742-051X Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
Education systems internationally are implementing data use initiatives with the aim of improving student learning. As teachers are key actors in the implementation of such initiatives, this study explored pre-service teachers' (N = 142) opportunities to learn how to use data during pre-service education, specifically student teaching. The study also examined how student teacher data use varies by school level and relevant coursework and in-school learning experiences. Findings suggest that student teaching might plausibly serve as a source of experiential learning relative to data use, especially at the elementary level, and regardless of pre-service teachers' prior or concurrent teacher education experiences.
