Educator Preparation Institutional Performance Report

CAEP Annual Measure 1

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 that align with CAEP Measure 1 are as follows: (a) value-added data for Ohio University-prepared teachers and principals, (b) teacher candidate academic measures, (c) resident educators' reflections on their educator preparation program data, (c) teacher residency data and (d) OTES data.

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. View the 2022 Ohio Department of Higher Education Educator Preparation Institutional Performance Report for the Institutional Data. (Some percentages are showing incorrectly in the Institutional Performance Report.)

The Value-Added data and OTES data were partially collected by the state for the 2020-2021 academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Value-Added data and OTES data were not required to be collected by school districts during this year. Due to partial data collection, Ohio University did not receive any Value-Added data for the 2020-2021 academic year for our graduates. Data collection resumed for the 2021-2022 academic year and the scoring values changed. The scoring values are now Light Blue (students made more growth than expected), Green (students made growth as expected), and Yellow (students made less growth than expected). Of recent graduates of Ohio University, 275 received Value-Added scores. Scoring in Green were 171, scoring in Light Blue were 37, and scoring in Yellow were 67. Ohio University received partial OTES data for the 2020-2021 academic year. All areas except "Skilled" (18) were N<10. Data collection resumed for the 2021-2022 academic year and 44 scored "Proficient" while 5 scored "Accomplished". The scores of "Ineffective" and "Developing" were N<3. 

*Other data found in this report not aligned to CAEP Measure 1 or 2 are as follows: (a) overall licensure pass rates, (b) teacher candidate academic measures, (c) field, and clinical experience data, (d) pre-service teacher candidate survey data, (e) accreditation information, (f) excellence and innovation initiatives at Ohio University.

*ODHE is currently experiencing some issues with the reports and is working to resolve the issues. Some data is showing incorrectly in the reports. An example is the response rates are showing as 477%.

The OHIO Center for Clinical Practice in Education houses all professional development school partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) documents. MOU's can be requested by contacting Marcy Keifer Kennedy. A sample MOU can be viewed. We currently have professional development school partnerships with the following school districts: Alexander Local Schools, Athens City Schools, Federal Hocking Schools, Logan-Hocking Schools, and Nelsonville-York Schools. Partners are also invited to participate in Unit meetings to provide updates and feedback. Examples of partner participation can be found in UPEP meeting minutes for the 22-23 academic year.

Pearson Licensure Data

CAEP Annual Measure 3

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. Our overall pass rate in 2021-2022 was an 84.71%. 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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, testing centers were closed for some time in the 2019-2020 academic year which disrupted the amount of candidates and the timeframe which candidates typically take the test during the academic year. Candidates were also allowed to postpone their tests during the 2020-2021 academic year and receive a temporary teaching license, which further delayed candidates from taking the tests. Test scores for the 2022-2023 academic year will be the first since the pandemic to reflect a more traditional year with no licensure extensions or allowances for testing.
