Colleges and Universities Data System

Spring College Campus Building

The Iowa Reading Research Center is proud to partner with Iowa’s Institutions of Higher Education to align statewide literacy initiatives with pre-service teacher preparation. Instructors at Iowa’s colleges and universities with elementary teacher preparation programs have participated in training to administer and use the Formative Assessment System for Teachers (FAST) and Individual Growth & Development (IGDI) assessments as part of Iowa’s Early Warning System for Literacy. The Iowa Reading Research Center hosts a data platform, which is parallel to the Iowa Department of Education's data platform, that can be used to train future educators in practicum and pre-service settings.
