    CAEP-Accredited

    As part of the Helen DeVos College of Education’s continued effort towards improved teacher preparation, annual assessments are conducted at the federal, state, and institutional level. The following two reports provide detailed program information.

     

    TITLE 2 Report

    The US Department of Education describes the federal, Title 2 report this way, “Title II of the Higher Education Act requires three annual reports on the quality of teacher preparation. Schools of education are to report to states the pass rates of their graduates on state certification assessments and other program data in April. States in turn are required to report to the U.S. Department of Education information on certification and licensure requirements, pass rates on state assessments disaggregated and ranked by institution, and other information in October.”

    2014 Alternative Preparation 2013 Alternative Preparation
    THEC Report Card

    The Tennessee Higher Education Commission describes Tennessee’s EPP report card this way, “In 2007, the Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation requiring the publication of a report on the effectiveness of teacher preparation programs throughout the state. Tennessee Code requires reporting on three indicators: placement and retention rates, Praxis II scores, and teacher effect data based on Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) scores. Through First to the Top, the report now includes a demographic and academic profile of each teacher preparation program and trend data on the effectiveness of program completers over time. The Report allows programs access to data from which to make targeted improvements and provides the public information on the effectiveness of teacher program completers.”
