CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) requires programs to provide performance measures to the public regarding eight categories related to program impact and program outcomes.  The table below provides summary data for each of the eight measures.

CAEP Annual Reporting Measure 1:  Impact on P-12 Learning and Development

The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) provided value added data for completers.

Description of Data:

Ohio's value-added data system provides information on student academic gains. As a vital component of Ohio's accountability system, districts and educators have access to an extensive array of diagnostic data through the Education Value-Added Assessment System (EVAAS). Schools can demonstrate through value added data that many of their students are achieving significant progress. Student growth measures also provide students and parents with evidence of the impact of their efforts. Educators and schools further use value-added data to inform instructional practices.

Value-Added Data (2015), (2016), (2017), (2018)

Rating2015   Total   # of Completers is 682016   Total   # of Completers is 782017 Total   # of Completers is 732018 Total # of Completers     is 53
Most Effective12 (18%)19 (24%)13 (18%)N=10 (19%)

Approaching Average13 (19%)7 (9%)16 (22%)N=7 (13%)
Least Effective17 (25%)10 (13%)11 (15%)N=20 (38%)


Value added data provided by the state for the years above indicates 62% of K-12 students are performing at average, above average or most effective on state assessments in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Value added data for principals from the state includes:

Initial Licensure Effective Years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018
Principals Serving by Letter Grade of Overall Building Value-Added ​ ​ ​ ​

Overall, this is a low N to pull trend data. The buildings had 54% medium-high poverty levels.

CAEP Annual Reporting Measure 2: Indicator of Teaching Effectiveness

The ODHE provided data from the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) for completers
Description of Data:

Ohio's system for evaluating teachers (Ohio's Teacher Evaluation System) provides educators with a detailed view of their performance, with a focus on specific strengths and opportunities for improvement. The system is research-based and designed to be transparent, fair, and adaptable to the specific contexts of Ohio's school districts. Furthermore, it builds on what educators know about the importance of ongoing assessment and feedback as a powerful vehicle to support improved practice. Teacher performance and student academic growth are the two key components of Ohio's evaluation system.

An apparent dip in evaluations for the most recent "Initial License Effective Year" cohort comes from the perception that any given year's evaluation results is actually a chronological view of evaluations. Rather, it's a view of the evaluations from that school year, showing four different cohorts of licensed educators. The most recently licensed cohort will eventually have more evaluation results in its second year as more educators find employment as teachers or principals.

Limitations of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Data:

1. The information in the report is for those individuals receiving their licenses with effective years of 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.

2. The teacher evaluation data in this report are provided by the Ohio Department of Education.

3. Due to ORC 3333.041(B), annual results must be masked for institutions with fewer than 10 completers with OTES data.

Associated Teacher Evaluation Classifications

Initial Licensure Effective Year# Accomplished# Skilled# Developing# Ineffective


Description of Data:

Ohio's system for evaluating principals (Ohio's Principal Evaluation System) provides building leaders with a detailed view of their performance, with a focus on specific strengths and opportunities for improvement.

The Ohio Principal Evaluation System (OPES) data reported here are limited in that the information in the report is for those individuals receiving their licenses with effective years of 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.

The n was less than 10 for all years. The EPP conducts focus groups each year, results from this focus group indicate that completers felt prepared for their current position. ​

CAEP Annual Reporting Measure 3: Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones

The program administers employer surveys of program graduates from one-year and three-year completers. The employer response rate was 73%. 90% of the employers who returned the survey felt alumni were well prepared.  57% were "very satisfied" while 33% were "satisfied", 6% marked "improving" while only an average of 3% were "not satisfied".

An employment milestone is passing the Resident Educator Assessment in year three of teaching, the EPP has 100% passage rate:

Employer surveys for advanced licensure completers noted 100% satisfaction in 2019-2020. 

CAEP Annual Reporting Measure 4: Satisfaction of completers

ODHE completer surveys over the last three years have been strong with many of the institution averages being equal or above the state (77.97% for 2018-2019). From our Advanced Program we have 100% completer satisfaction.

Title II Report​

As required by Title II of the Higher Education Act, the University of Findlay College of Education submits a teacher preparation program annual report on Praxis II pass rates, and other program characteristics to the State of Ohio.  ​

The State of Ohio then submits to the United States Department of Education its annual report on teacher licensure requirements and teacher preparation programs from all university teacher education institutions. The Secretary reports to Congress and the public on the quality of teacher preparation programs in th​e nation.
