The Improvement Cycle Framework is designed to support educator-preparation programs through a sequence of activities that help to organize cycles of inquiry and improvement.
The framework makes explicit that improvement first requires deep, evidence-informed reflection (inquiry) to identify areas for growth, followed by intentional action to make changes (improvement) to and regularly assess progress against improvement goals. Improvement is inevitably non-linear, but this framework identifies key stages of progress. It is not the only way to describe or organize improvement efforts, but can be helpful in supporting programs through this complex work.
