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

Annual Reporting Measures 18-19

Accreditation Measures

Measure 1: Impact on P-12 Learning and Development

Ohio’s Education Value-Added Assessment System (EVAAS) uses scores from standardized achievement tests to determine student academic growth. The information from the value-added data assists teachers linked to the students to better understand the impact of their instructional practices. The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) annually reports the value-added data of Ohio teachers to the institution which prepared them on the Metrics Reporting System.

 

Measure 2: Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness

This data comes from the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) which includes teacher effectiveness ratings as determined by their administrators after conducting observations of the teachers. The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) annually reports the OTES data of Ohio teachers to the institution which prepared them on the Metrics Reporting System.

 

Measure 3: Satisfaction of Employers

The ODHE conducts an annual statewide survey of employers of Ohio educators on the quality of the preparation program through which the teachers were prepared. The data is reported on the Metrics Reporting System.

 

Measure 4: Satisfaction of Completers

These data come from a statewide survey of Ohio resident educators on alumni satisfaction with the quality of preparation provided by their educator preparation programs. The data are reported in the Metrics Reporting System from the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

 

Measure 5: Graduation Rates

This data indicates the graduation rate of our students who completed the education preparation program at Wilmington College. The data comes from Wilmington College records of graduation.

 

Measure 6: Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing Requirements

This data is comprised of how many of our program completers took and passed the Ohio Assessment for Educators (OAE) content and professional knowledge licensure tests for their programs. The data is taken from the OAE scores reported to Wilmington College by Pearson.
