CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

The information on this page presents the eight annual reporting measures as required by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

1. Impact on P-12 Learning and Development

The Educator Preparation Program at the University of Montevallo utilizes 2 measures to evaluate our completers impact on P-12 learning and development.

1) The UM EPP designs and implements case studies to examine completer impact on P-12 learning and development.  Case studies are developed collaboratively with P-12 partners.  Case study methodology, including data sources and findings, are described in the document linked below:

2) As part of the case study outlined above, the EPP utilizes the Colorado’s Student Perception Survey from the Colorado Education Initiative as a second measure of Impact on P-12 learning and development, specifically P-12 student perceptions of completer impact.

Survey data are linked below:

2017-2018 Student Perception of Instruction

2018-2019 Student Perception of Instruction

2019-2020 Student Perception of Instruction

2. Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness

The Educator Preparation Program at the University of Montevallo utilizes 2 measures to evaluate our completers impact on P-12 learning and development through teaching effectiveness.

1) The UM EPP designs and implements case studies to examine completer impact on P-12 learning and development. Case studies are developed collaboratively with P-12 partners. Case study methodology, including data sources and findings described in the document, are linked below.

3. Satisfaction of Employers and Employment Milestones

The following data were provided to the EPP by the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) for initial licensure completers.  The State collected the data by administering a survey that was designed by the Alabama Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (ALACTE).  The ALSDE then collected data from public school districts across the state.  The data for all reporting years compare all institutions and UM in the same document but does not provide data disaggregated by licensure.

Although survey results indicate an overall high lever of employer satisfaction with recent UM completers across all programs, growth areas include reflexivity and adaptability, classroom management, and collaboration.  The EPP is working with P-12 partners, including but not limited to the Montevallo Connection, to identify and develop program and clinical adjustments to strengthen these areas of preparation.

4. Satisfaction of Completers

The UM EPP uses four measures to evaluate completer satisfaction.

  1. ALACATE In-service Teacher Survey

The following data were provided to the EPP by the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) for initial licensure completers.  The State collected the data by administering a survey that was designed by the Alabama Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (ALACTE).  The ALSDE then collected data from public school districts across the state.  The data for all reporting years compare all institutions and UM in the same document but does not provide data disaggregated by licensure.

Although survey results indicate an overall high lever of employer satisfaction with recent UM completers across all programs, growth areas include reflexivity and adaptability, classroom management, and collaboration.  The EPP is working with P-12 partners, including but not limited to the Montevallo Connection, to identify and develop program and clinical adjustments to strengthen these areas of preparation.

5. Graduation Rates and Title II Reports

A.  Graduation Rates:

The graduation rates linked below were calculated by the UM Office of Institutional Research, Planning, and Assessment (IRPA). Graduate rates for undergraduate and graduate students are included. These files contain information on overall rates as well as the rates for each program area, as available. Note that IRPA defines retention as the number of students returning who do not graduate. This is typically accurate for first year rate at undergraduate level, but tends to leave gaps after the first year where small but significant numbers of students graduate before an expected 4-year cycle. As such, persistence rates are included to identify those who finished early. That is the distinction in the posted reports between retention and persistence. The data are current as of April 30, 2021.

6. Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing Requirements and Additional State Requirements

The state of Alabama requirements vary depending on certification. The EPP Office of Teacher Education Services (TES) curates requirements for certification for various licensure levels. These requirements are posted and continuously monitored on the TES website. Specific program requirements should be discussed with the EPP Certification Officer.

On average, over 98% of initial and advanced program completers are recommended for certification upon graduation. The data linked below includes TEP admission, degree conferral, and certification eligibility for the 2017-2018, 2018-2019, and 2019-2020 academic years:

Initial Certification: TEP Admission, Degree Conferrals, and Certification Eligibility

Of the many state requirements, Praxis and edTPA are both requirements we can measure. Please note that only Elementary data are posted for confidentiality purposes due to consistently lower numbers across other programs.

A. Praxis Core Academic Skills

For information on the Praxis core, please visit https://www.ets.org/praxis/about/core/.  On June 11th, 2020, the State of Alabama eliminated the Praxis Core requirement for unconditional admission to undergraduate Teacher Education Programs in an emergency rule change. The EPP permanently adopted this change on December 31, 2020.

7. Ability of Completers to be Hired in Education Positions for Which They Have Been Prepared

The EPP surveys graduating seniors and recent completers annually to track employment trends. (See Section 4, Subsection 4). The EPP also curates data furnished by the Alabama State Department of Education. These data track alumni employment trends for recent initial and advanced program completers hired in public schools in Alabama.

    A. ALSDE Data (Initial and Advanced)

The Alabama State Department of Education provides completer employment data  to the EPP upon request. These data only include completers employed by public schools in the state of Alabama and does not represent those who may be employed by private, parochial, or out-of-state schools.

8. Student Loan Default Rates and Other Consumer Information

A) The U.S. Department of Education releases official cohort default rates once per year.  A cohort default rate is the percentage of a school’s borrowers who enter repayment on certain Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program or William D. Ford Federal District Loan (Direct Loan) Program loans during a particular federal fiscal year (FY), October 1 to September 30, and default or meet other specified conditions prior to the end of the second following fiscal year.  The student loan default rates for all schools can be found here.
