With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, AACTE has launched the Consortium for Research-Based and Equitable Assessments (CREA), an initiative to evaluate cut scores for entrance into educator preparation programs. Specifically, the Consortium will seek to examine the processes and considerations that states use to determine cut scores, and how they can be refined to attract, rather than exclude, potential teacher candidates. The Consortium’s responsibilities will include but are not limited to:
The Consortium shall be comprised of 15 state teams. Although there can be multiple EPPs on a state team, one EPP will serve as the lead applicant to join the Consortium and will carry out its duties as outlined in the agreement executed between AACTE and their School/College of Education.
Other members of the state teams will include representatives with expertise and/or influence in establishing cut scores for teacher certification and licensure from the state education agency (SEA) and local education agencies (LEAs).
Consortium members will serve through February 2022. The Consortium will meet at least quarterly during the 2021-2022 project year.
Interested EPPs are encouraged to apply.
Required Materials: Lead applicants must provide these documents as part of their applications:
