CAEP believes that the field of education is in need of a research base to document and substantiate promising and effective practices and innovations. Many of the providers CAEP accredits are focused on improving the quality of education by preparing future educators, enhancing the effectiveness of current educators, conducting research, and providing services in real-world schools. All of these endeavors have the potential to inform the field at large through a rigorous process of research and development. Thus, CAEP’s Transformation Initiative seeks proposals that conduct research on promising practices, innovations, and interventions directed at transforming educator preparation for greater accountability, effectiveness, rigor, and quality.
