The IERC releases its report on the 5Essentials Survey

The purpose of this study is to examine how Illinois school districts are utilizing the Illinois 5Essentials Survey results, particularly for school improvement, to determine challenges to successful implementation and to make recommendations for improvements to the 5E Survey and implementation process for statewide use. We also summarize district/school stakeholders' familiarity with the 5E Survey, perceived value of the survey, preferences for training, levels of supports, and reasons for not using the 5E Survey data.  Examples of districts' promising practices for utilizing the 5E data are also highlighted. The full report and an executive summary are available. 

The Illinois Education Research Council has been awarded a two-year, $500,000 grant from the Robert R. MCormick Foundation and a two-year $50,000 grant from the Wallace Foundation to study the implementation of the redesigned principal preparation programs in Illinois.  For more details, see the official press release.

Full Report  |  Research Highlights

This study examines the impact of student outmigration on Illinois employment and earnings. Our intent is for this study to inform policy to both decrease the outmigration of students and to collect appropriate data to track these students and quantify the impact.
