2017 – Present

RMC Research is collaborating with the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Central at Marzano Research and the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) to provide technical assistance to a consortium of educator preparation programs that are collaborating to develop the Kansas Clinical Assessment Tool (K-CAT). The K-CAT is designed to assess the performance of teacher preparation program candidates during their student teaching experience and aligns with KSDE Professional Education Standards. The project focuses on building capacity to evaluate and maintain the reliability and validity of the K-CAT.
