CAEP Annual Accountability Measures
MUW School of Education 2022
The Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) requires four annual accountability measures that demonstrate accountability and provide information on Mississippi University for Women’s (MUW) School of Education’s initial licensure programs impact, outcomes, and performance to share publicly with stakeholders, teacher candidates, and potential students.
MUW’s School of Education and fourteen other public and private higher education institutions annually submit data that is used to establish external benchmarks for Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs). Included in this data is statewide data from the Mississippi Public School system. This information is compiled in an Impact Report, developed to help institutions comply with CAEPs Annual Accountability Measures. This report, along with other data collected within the School of Education, is used in making data driven decisions in the EPP’s Continuous Improvement Process. Data gathered for these measures was collected during the 2021-2022 academic year.
Measure 1: Completer Impact and Effectiveness (CAEP R4.1)
Impact on P-12 learning
Satisfaction of Completers
Measure 2: Satisfaction of Employers and Stakeholder Involvement (CAEP R4.2, R5.3)
The satisfaction of employers and milestones provides MUW School of Education invaluable information from employers about their overall satisfaction with completers from initial level programs as they enter the teaching profession. The survey results provide information from employers regarding completer knowledge, skills, and dispositions as they enter the workforce and assume responsibility of teaching P-12 students
Measure 3: Candidate Competency at Program Completion (CAEP R3.3)
Data was collected in Spring/Fall 2022 by Program Completers during their final seminar. The first section of the survey focuses on candidate program coursework, residency/clinical hours, and mentor teachers and the second section focuses on feedback regarding mentor teachers and university supervisors. This survey was piloted in Fall 2021, and the scores from this survey will be used as benchmarks for monitoring progress and need for improvement in future semesters.
Due to COVID-19, MDE implemented a testing waiver that went into effect for program completers from March 26, 2020 through December 31, 2021. Completers may not have recorded licensure exams during this time period.
