1. Completer effectiveness and impact on P-12 learning and development (Component R1.4).
Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Data
OTES is the primary source of data we use to evaluate program impact and to assess completer effectiveness. This research-based educator evaluation tool was developed by educators from diverse fields and is used by Ohio school districts to evaluate teacher performance.

Impact on P-12 Learning and Development
Value-Added data are a subset of data related to student growth from OTES. Value-added data only cover select content areas and age bands.
Value-Added data were not collected by the State during the 2020-2021 year due to extenuating circumstances (COVID), and therefore will not become available. The next available data from the State will be for the 2021-2022 year. For the most recent data, please see the 2019-2020 Impact Measures.
2. Satisfaction of employers and stakeholder involvement (Components R4.2; R5.3; R4.1).
Satisfaction of Employers
Kent State University’s Research and Evaluation Bureau conducted a phone survey with area administrators about their satisfaction with the preparation of our graduates. The survey was last conducted November 2020 - February 2021; we plan to administer the survey every three years to avoid overburdening our partners.
Partner Focus Groups
Clinical Partner Survey
The Clinical Experience Advisory Committee (CEAC) survey was last conducted in 2019. We plan to re-administer this survey periodically to avoid overburdening our partners.
3. Candidate competency at program completion (Components R3.3; R3.4).
Ohio Assessments for Educators
The Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) program assesses the content-area and professional (pedagogical) knowledge of candidates who are seeking initial Ohio educator licensure or adding a new licensure area. The assessments are aligned with Ohio's Learning Standards. Ohio licensure candidates are required to successfully complete only ONE assessment of professional (pedagogical) knowledge for their first license. The addition of other licensure areas or endorsements will require only successful completion of the associated content-area assessment. For more information see, OAE Requirements by Licensure Area & Grade Level.
|Group||Number taking tests||Number passing tests||Pass Rate (%)|
|All program completers, 2019-20||288||258||90|
|All program completers, 2018-19||375||363||97|
|All program completers, 2017-18||340||322||95|
4. Ability of completers to be hired in education positions for which they have prepared.
Kent State University is currently working with a vendor to assist in identification of post-program employment in educational settings; data have been collected for two semesters’ worth of graduates, but response rates are so low they are not interpretable. We do not have enough data to provide for review at this time, but anticipate being able to do so in 2023.
Completer Persistence in Employment
