Ohio recognizes that high-quality teachers and principals are developed through high-quality educator preparation programs. To improve the quality of preparation programs in Ohio, H.B. 1 of the 128th General Assembly directed the Chancellor of the Board of Regents to develop a system for evaluating Ohio’s educator preparation programs and holding institutions of higher education accountable for their graduates’ success. Data included in this report include: (a) overall licensure pass rates, (b) value-added data for Ohio University-prepared teachers and principals, (c) teacher candidate academic measures, (d) field and clinical experience data, (e) pre-service teacher candidate survey data, (f) resident educators' reflections on their educator preparation program data, (g) accreditation information, (h) teacher residency data and (i) excellence and innovation initiatives at Ohio University. H.B. 290 of the 128th General Assembly provided for the sharing of data between the Ohio Board of Regents and the Ohio Department of Education to link the performance of educators to the institutions that prepared them.

As a member of Eduventures’ Schools of Education Learning Collaborative (SOE-LC), OU’s Patton College elected to participate in a survey of its recent graduates. Moving forward, Eduventures will conduct a bi-annual alumni survey each spring of alumni from the schools in its SOE-LC with core teaching competency questions mapped to INTASC standards and core administrator competency questions mapped to ISLLC standards.

The Patton College of Education has sought to collect meaningful feedback about its graduates’ preparation from their employers. Through careful collaboration and the use of a pilot group, Eduventures and The Patton College of Education were able to design and launch a comprehensive survey.

The Praxis II content and Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) tests are administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and must be passed for teacher candidates to be licensed in the State of Ohio. The National Council on Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) requires that programs maintain a minimum of an 80% pass rate. Our overall pass rate in the 2012-2013 academic year was 91.7%. Programs that fall below an 80% pass rate are required to implement a program improvement plan. To see more detailed data, click here.
