Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) Longitudinal Database

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   George C. Alter, Brian P. Rowan, Paul Courant, Deborah Loewenberg Ball, Kara M. Suzuka

This project is designed to facilitate the sharing of the data components of the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET), a primary research project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The Inter-university Consortium for Social and Political Research (ICPSR), the Survey Research Center (SRC), the School of Education, and the University Libraries formed a partnership to propose that the University of Michigan archive and disseminate the quantitative and video data generated from the MET project, in response to a Gates Foundation request.

The core work proposed includes: Coordinating multiple internal and external partners to achieve project goals; acquiring all the video and quantitative data components from the MET project; processing the quantitative data into standard ICPSR data and documentation files for preservation and dissemination; processing the video files into a condition that can be streamed online and with adequate and searchable metadata; developing a website portal for the project that includes project information, data information, an online restricted use data contracting system, and a secure video streaming feature; develop a virtual data enclave where data users will access and analyze project and their own data; preservation of archive components; and user support.

Funding Period: 08/03/2011 to 06/30/2013
