Wilmington College’s educator preparation programs are accredited by CAEP.
Wilmington’s educator preparation programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). This accreditation recognizes that our education programs have met national professional standards for the preparation of teachers. In CAEP’s performance based accreditation system, institutions must provide evidence of competent teacher candidate performance. Teacher candidates must know the subject matter they plan to teach and how to teach effectively so that all students learn. All education programs at Wilmington are CAEP-accredited until Fall 2025:

Follow the steps below to review performance reports for Wilmington’s educator preparation programs compiled by the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE):
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This data indicates the licensure and employment rates for program completers. It comes from the Ohio Department of Education data.
