SRI Education’s evaluation of the New Teacher Center’s (NTC’s) Investing in Innovation (i3) Validation grant revealed positive impacts of NTC’s induction model on student achievement in mathematics and English language arts. Using randomized controlled trials in two districts; Broward County Public Schools and Chicago Public Schools, SRI Education examined the impact of the NTC induction model on teacher practice and student achievement. In addition to the positive student outcomes, the study found that NTC-supported teachers scored similarly on teacher practice measures and had similar rates of retention into their third year of teaching as teachers receiving typical district supports.
