CAEP Annual Review
CAEP Annual Reporting Measures
1. Impact on P-12 Learning and Development
The measure we are using at present for this is the 2017 “Value-Added Data for Students Taught by Teachers Prepared by Ohio Educator Preparation Providers at Ashland University” report provided by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
Of the 658 graduated employed as teachers in the state of Ohio, only 251 were teaching in areas where value-added data were gathered. Of those teachers, 66% were rated as average or above. Another 13 % were rated as approaching average.
2. Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness
The “Value-Added” data cited above give one indication of teaching effectiveness. A second measure is the “Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Results for Ohio Teachers Prepared by an Ohio Educator Preparation Provider at Ashland University” report provided by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.
Of the teachers receiving their initial licensure from 2013 to 2016, the vast majority of teachers were classified as Accomplished or Skilled with fewer than 10 teachers for any one licensure year being classified as Ineffective.
3. Satisfaction of Employers and Employment Milestones
The “Employer Perceptions of Ohio EPP Programs Survey Results” provided by the Ohio Department of Higher Education measures employer satisfaction for teachers who are graduates of Ashland University.
Employers rated Ashland graduates higher than the state average on 13 of the 15 measures and less than .1 points below the state average on the other two measures.
The “Ohio EPP Program Completers Persisting in the State Resident Educator Program who were Prepared at Ashland University” provided by the Ohio Department of Higher Education indicates the number of teachers entering and completing each year of the 4-year residency program required of new teachers in the state of Ohio. At each level, over 98% of Ashland graduates completed the step they were in.
4. Satisfaction of Completers
The Ohio Department of Higher Education surveys pre-service teachers during their internship and teachers as they begin their second year in the Ohio Resident Educators program. Results can be found in the “Pre-Service Teacher Survey Results” and the “Statewide Survey of OHIO Resident Educators’ Reflections on their Educator Preparation Program” reports.
The Pre-service Teacher Survey Results indicate that the average satisfaction of Ashland University pre-service teachers was above the state average for 36 of the 49 items and within .1 points of the state average on all but one of the remaining items. The survey results for teachers from Ashland University beginning their second year in the Ohio Resident Educator program indicate that their average satisfaction was above the state average for 36 of the 49 items and within .1 points of the state average on all but two of the remaining items.
