CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

CAEP (Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation) has eight annual reporting measures which are used to provide information to the public on both program outcome and program impact.

Following is the list of the CAEP measures with links to data tables that provide supporting evidence for each measure:

Measures of Program Impact:

Measure 1: Impact that completers' teaching has on P-12 learning and development

  • Value-Added ratings — state ratings of teachers' impact on gains in student learning, as measured by standardized test scores of the students in their classes.

Measure 2: Indicators of teaching effectiveness

  • OTES ratings — principal ratings of the competence of recent graduates, as mandated under the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System.

Measure 3: Results of employer surveys, and including retention and employment milestones

  • Principal survey — a survey of principals' perception of recent YSU graduates' preparation in the region served by the university.
  • Resident Educator data — data on YSU graduates' completion of requirements of the Resident Educator program, a program to support teachers during their first four years of service.

Measure 4: Results of completer surveys

  • Graduate survey — a survey of in-service teachers one year after graduation from a YSU teacher preparation program.

Measures on Program Outcome and Consumer Information:

Measure 5: Graduation rates from preparation programs

Measure 6: Ability of completers to meet licensing (certification) and any additional state requirements

Measure 7: Ability of completers to be hired in education positions for which they are prepared

Measure 8: Student loan default rates and other consumer information
