2013 Ohio Board of regents Educator Preparation "Institutional" Performance Report

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.
