Impact Measures (CAEP Standard 4)
1. Impact on P-12 learning and development (Component 4.1)
2. Indicators of teaching effectiveness (Component 4.2)
3. Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones (Component 4.3 | A.4.1)
4. Satisfaction of completers (Component 4.4 | A.4.2)
5. Graduation Rates (initial & advanced levels)
6. Ability of completers to meet licensing (certification) and any additional state requirements; Title II (initial & advanced levels)
For initial teacher licensure programs (graduate and undergraduate), the data are derived from Title II.
For advanced programs, we calculate completers’ ability to meet licensing requirements a variety of ways.
For our “add-on” advanced programs (additional licensure/endorsement candidates), at this time, we are working on a more sophisticated tracking system to ensure more complete data. In the past, additional licensure and endorsement candidates have enrolled through a variety of pathways (not specifically designated for that purpose). Because of this, we are only officially made aware of their intentions to pursue licensure at the time of application for licensure — at the conclusion of the sequence of courses. Of those, we can evaluate the applicants who are approved for licensure as having met the requirements (which may, but not always, include a licensing examination).
We calculate principal program completers’ ability to meet licensing requirements by evaluating the number of completers that have passed state licensing examinations after graduating from degree programs resulting in licensure. This practice will change in the future (using the same methods we are introducing for additional licenses and endorsements). For superintendent candidates, we review completers of the program (a certificate) against licensure application/approval records).
