Outcome Measures

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%.
