Educator Preparation "Institutional" Performance Report

CAEP Annual Measure 1 and 2

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 Ohio Department of Higher Education 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 Department of Higher Education and the Ohio Department of Education to link the performance of educators to the institutions that prepared them.

Survey of OHIO Patton College Employers

Eduventures Alumni Pulse Survey

CAEP Annual Measure 4

As a member of Eduventures' Schools of Education Learning Collaborative (SOE-LC), OHIIO'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.

PEARSON LICENSURE DATA

CAEP Annual Measure 6

The Ohio Assessments for Educators are administered by Pearson and must be passed for teacher candidates, principal candidates, and school counselors to be licensed in the State of Ohio. The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation requires that programs maintain an 80% minimum pass rate. Our overall pass rate in 2018-2019 was an 89.5%. It is important to note that due to statewide issues with several of the tests, the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Higher Education are recalibrating those tests to better align to Ohio standards.

*Beginning in September, 2013 the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) changed the licensure test from the Praxis II to the Ohio Assessment for Educators. As a result of statewide issues with several of the tests (i.e. all of the Middle Childhood tests, English Language Arts, and Integrated Mathematics) ODE and the Ohio Department of Higher Education are recalibrating those tests to better align to Ohio standards.
