Teacher Candidate Impact on Student Learning

Prior to the implementation of edTPA which began with the 2021 completers, the EPP used it's own Senior Comprehensive Exam rubric, which evaluated the teacher candidates' impact on P-12 student learning during their student teaching semester. The EPP began using edTPA in 2021 in order to have a reliable and valid measurement of teacher candidates' impact on student learning during their student teaching semester.

edTPA Results Disaggregated by Licensure Level
The EPP uses the data from completer and employer surveys, edTPA outcomes, Praxis II scores and pass rates, Danielson Rubric feedback, as well as results from several key assessments each year to form a holistic view of areas needing improvement, areas of growth, and areas of continued success. In addition, the EPP presents this data to the Teacher Education Committee and the Teacher Advisory Council for stakeholder input on ways to fulfill deficits and input on proposed improvements.
