UCLA IMPACT: Integrating Research and Practice Using Multiple Measures

Author(s): Jon Schweig, Mollie Appelgate, Karen Hunter Quartz


Since 1995, UCLA's Center X has run an innovative teacher education program focused on providing high quality teachers for urban schools.   Last year, UCLA added another pathway to its teacher preparation options, an Urban Teacher Residency program called IMPACT:  Inspiring Minds through a Professional Alliance of Community Teachers. This program is built from a strategic partnership of UCLA’s Teacher Education Program (TEP), the Los Angeles Small Schools Center and Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Local District 4.  By creating this new approach to teacher learning within this partnership, IMPACT is a design experiment that seeks to integrate research and practice.  In this overview paper, the authors briefly describe IMPACT and the efforts of their collaborative research team to study this program using multiple measures of teaching practice and use the findings for the purposes of evaluation, research, and data-driven school improvement.
