This paper discusses the impact of the partnership developed between Mesa State College (MSC) and the local K-12 school district when working together on parallel grants for the Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Data (PTD) project. Discussion of the Information-Based Educational Practice Standards for Teacher Practice (IBEP) between local school district personnel and MSC Teacher Education faculty resulted in curricular changes to education courses leading to the preparation of better-qualified teachers who are able to use data-driven assessment to make instructional decisions for the purpose of increasing student learning. The paper includes the details of the course revisions centered around the IBEP standards and the impact these assignments have had on the marketability of the preservice teachers in the local school district.
