(EDA) Educational Dispositional Assessment

The EDA is a dispositional measurement tool designed by Almerico, Johnston, and Wilson at Educational Dispositional Assessment Consultants, LLC. The EDA is designed to help faculty evaluate teacher candidates by measuring nine dispositions over twenty-seven items. The EDA uses a three-point scale ranging from “Needs Improvement” to “Meets Expectations” to score candidates on the various items. The EDA is widely accepted as a measurement tool and is supported by CAEP. The EDA is administered as follows:

  • Prior to admissions as a student self-assessment and by a university evaluator
  • Practicum 2 or sole practicum
  • Student Teaching
  • Internship
  • As needed
