In the state of Indiana, to be able to recommend students for any form of education license, the School is required to be accredited by the professional association, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). As a part of CAEP’s ongoing review of the School, it monitors four (4) CAEP Accountability Measures.
Of particular importance for examining teacher effectiveness and impact on P12 learners is completer/teacher performance in relation to the state’s teacher evaluation system. The second portion of the RISE teacher evaluation rubric (which results in the data reported) focuses on Effective Instruction, with the other two portions of the evaluation focusing on Purposeful Planning and Teacher Leadership. Effective Instruction includes nine (9) criteria and constitutes roughly 50% of each individual teacher’s score or ranking. Thus, it is extremely difficult to earn a rating of Effective or Highly Effective without demonstrating proficiency in the Effective Instruction band of the RISE instrument. The table below outlines the results reported by the Indiana Department of Education for the EPP at Indiana University East.
|Number (n=)||Effective||Highly Effective||Total|
Information about employer satisfaction comes from two sources: the Indiana Department of Education’s principal survey and the EPP-created employer survey. The principal survey results are included in the annual report from the IDOE referenced above. With the exception of one year in which the IDOE made errors in disseminating the survey, the EPP has received the following overall rankings.
In 2017, the EPP drafted and began implementing an employer satisfaction survey. Because local administrators and cooperating teachers had expressed frustration over the length of surveys or evaluations used in the past, the employer satisfaction survey was intentionally kept shorter than its counterpart, the completer satisfaction survey, in hopes of increasing response rates while still addressing the same concepts/constructs. Results from the EPP-created employer satisfaction survey appear below.
