CAEP Accreditation Annual Reporting Measures
In accordance with the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) policy, there are eight annual reporting measures to provide information to the public on the Educator Preparation Provider (EPP) program impacts and outcomes. The reporting measures follow here, along with the status as reported in LSSU’s 2019 EPP Annual Report.
Impact Measures (CAEP Standard 4)
Currently the LSSU School of Education does not measure the program impact for completers and therefore does not meet this component of CAEP Standard 4. However, we have a plan to meet the criteria of Standard 4 as outlined below.
Measure 1: Impact on P-12 learning and development (Component 4.1)
Measure 2: Indicators of teaching effectiveness (Component 4.2)
Measure 3: Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones (Component 4.3)
Measure 4: Satisfaction of completers (Component 4.4)
|Action Step||Target Completion Date||Person Responsible|
|Design and implement a way to measure in multiple methods and track P-12 student learning under the teaching of candidates during student teaching||Design by January 2020 and implement for spring 2020 student teachers||Dr. Barb Light and Dr. Guidi Yang|
|Design and implement a way to measure using multiple methods and track P-12 student learning under the teaching of completers during year 1 of teaching post graduation (same basic tool as used during student teaching)||Design by January 2020 and implement during the 2020-2021 school year||Dr. Barb Light and Dr. Guidi Yang|
|Design or find and implement an employer satisfaction survey for completers||Design or find by January 2020 and implement during the 2020-2021 school year||Dr. Barb Light or Field Placement Coordinator|
|Systematically track the employment milestones of completers including promotions, changes of school, and discuss and record employment trajectory for a representative sample of completers with their administrators||In Fall 2019 create the system and enter in data known for the past three cohorts of completers and then update yearly||Dr. Guidi Yang and the Academic Assistant|
|Analyze and share data with stakeholders||Yearly beginning in Summer 2021||Dr. Barb Light|
|In continuous improvement mode, check validity and reliability of above tools and then redesign as needed||Fall 2021||Dr. Barb Light and SOE Faculty|
|Review standard 4.1 and ensure that each component is being met||2021-2022 school year||Dr. Barb Light and SOE Faculty|
|Review standard 4.2 and ensure that each component is being met||2022-2023 school year||Dr. Barb Light and SOE Faculty|
|Review standard 4.3 and ensure that each component is being met||2023-2024 school year||Dr. Barb Light and SOE Faculty|
|Review standard 4.4 and ensure that each component is being met||2024-2025 school year||Dr. Barb Light and SOE Faculty|
|Determine a review cycle for Standard 4 components using the continuous improvement process||Fall 2025||Dr. Barb Light and SOE Faculty|
Measure 5: Graduation Rates
Candidates apply for full acceptance to the Teacher Education program following completion of EDUC301, which is normally taken in spring of their sophomore year. We track graduation rates for each spring cohort, through to successful completion of student teaching and graduation. The three cohorts that were eligible to complete student teaching and graduate by the end of the 2017 – 2018 academic year are those accepted in Spring 13, Spring 14, and Spring 15. The graduation rates for those cohorts are shown below:
- Spring 13 cohort: 9 candidates accepted, 67% graduation rate
- Spring 14 cohort: 7 candidates accepted, 100% graduation rate
- Spring 15 cohort: 11 candidates accepted, 73% graduation rate
Measure 6: Ability of completers to meet licensing (certification) and any additional state requirements
The three-year pass rate for LSSU completers, on the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification subject tests, required for certification in the state of Michigan is 97.6%.
Measure 7: Ability of completers to be hired in education positions for which they have prepared
Assessment plans for this evidence are under development and will be available in Fall 2019.
Measure 8: Student loan default rates and other consumer information
Student loan default rate is monitored at the institutional level, rather than at the EPP level. LSSU’s most recent default rates are:
Academic Year Cohort Default Rate
2014-15 (FY 15) 6.1%
2013-14 (FY 14) 6.8%
2012-13 (FY 13) 8.6%
