Candidate Performance Data

Candidate Performance Data

The College of Education’s assessment system features data collection from a variety of sources including performance assessments and satisfaction surveys. Systematic analysis of these data sources drive continuous improvement in the College of Education’s teacher preparation programs.

The AUM College of Education recognizes that the development of a competent, committed, and reflective educator means the development of a Professional Educator.

Candidate Performance Data

CAEP Annual Reporting Measures 1-4 Results:

In compliance with CAEP accreditation requirements, each Education Preparation Provider (EPP) is required to provide the public with indicators of program outcome and impact. These indicators serve as an accreditation resource for monitoring AUM’s performance as compared to established benchmarks. At the same time, the following reported measures provide prospective candidates, policymakers, the media, and CAEP with evidence of our completers’ performance in P-12 schools and consumer information associated with program outcome.


Measure 1: Impact on P-12 Learning and Development
Alabama does not provide student learning data tagged to completers’ EPPs to demonstrate impact of their initial teacher preparation. AUM thus chose to demonstrate completers’ impact on their students’ learning and followed the guidelines for a case study as described in the CAEP Handbook (2018, p. 48, 102).  To demonstrate impact, two sets of data are provided using multiple measures. Therefore, the case study methodology utilized to collect impact on P-12 data involved identifying a cohort of AUM initial completers in a regional school system. This school system provided STAR assessments on grades K-2 and SCANTRON assessments on students in grades 3-8.

**Due to Covid-19, the Alabama Department of Education was not able to administer state assessments. Therefore, no data is available to measure the Impact on P-12 Learning and Development for the 2019-2020 assessment cycle.

Measure 2: Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness
The Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) has recently provided Alabama EPPs access to employer evaluation data that would demonstrate teacher effectiveness associated with individual completers. Therefore, the methodology utilized to collect employer evaluation data to determine recent completers’ teaching effectiveness data involved identifying a cohort of completers from a regional school system as provided by ALSDE.

**Due to Covid-19, the Alabama Department of Education was not able to administer formal evaluations. Therefore, no data was available that appropriately satisfied the EPP’s needs for the 2019-2020 assessment cycle. No updated report is included because of the pandemic.

Measure 3: Results of Employer Surveys, Including Retention and Employment Milestones
The employer satisfaction survey evaluated the same items assessed by first-year completers and consists of 21 items based on the InTASC Learning Progressions and five indicators specific to Alabama. The survey was administered by the ALSDE and data analyzed and reported to the College of Education.

Measure 4: Results of Completer Surveys
The Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) administered a completer satisfaction survey in Spring 2018 that required first-year teachers to assess their teacher preparation program.
