CAEP Annual Measures

The Ohio State University’s Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). CAEP accreditation ensures quality through external review. The CAEP annual measures below shows how Ohio State EPPs comply with CAEP standards.

Initial educator preparation programs at The Ohio State University are accredited through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) through 2026. CAEP accreditation indicates our programs successfully prepare new teachers to effectively know their subject area, serve diverse groups of students, have meaningful preservice experiencesand use data to drive targeted program improvement.

Eligible advanced licensure programs (Orientation and Mobility, Principal, School Psychology EdS, and Superintendent) are currently undergoing review for CAEP accreditation in Autumn 2021.

CAEP Annual Measures

Impact on P-12 Learning

Ohio State uses two measures to evaluate EPP graduates’ impact on P-12 student learning and development.

Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Data

OTES data contains three measures: teacher performance rating, student growth rating, and final summative rating. The teacher performance rating is based on school leader observations while student growth measures may include value-added scores and/or student learning objectives (SLOs). The final summative rating considers performance in both categories

Year % Developing % Skilled % Accomplished Total Count
2020 OSU 7.8% 56.4% 35.8% 408
2020 State 7.9% 54.8% 37.3% 3776
2019 OSU 10.6% 51.1% 38.3% 810
2019 State 11.2% 52.3% 36.5% 8,844
2018 OSU 8.0% 48.5% 43.4% 824
2018 State 10.6% 50.9% 38.5% 9,777

Note: Less than 10 Ohio State completers received an Ineffective rating overall each year.

TREND: Over time, approximately 88% of first-year OSU completers perform at the Skilled/Accomplished level, and on average, 96% by their fourth-year in service with ~50% at the highest level.

Teaching Effectiveness

Ohio State EPPs use two measures to demonstrate that graduates effectively apply the professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions that the preparation experiences were designed to achieve.

Ohio State Initial Licensure Value-Added (VA) Data

Ohio's value-added (VA) data system provides information on student academic gains in specific content areas and grade levels1. VA data demonstrates student progress within a given academic year and are used to inform instructional practices and teacher evaluations. Data represented below reflect Ohio State completers with Resident Educator licenses provided by the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) reported by Ohio’s Education Value-Added Assessment System (EVAAS). Teachers receive effectiveness ratings comparing their actual student growth in relation to the standard error (SE) above or below their expected growth within a year’s timeframe2. They also receive index ratings as a quantifiable growth score.

Overall Value-Added Effectiveness Ratings

Year Most Effective Above Average Average Approaching Average Least Effective Total Count
Relation to expected growth (0) >2 SE above 1-2 SE above 1 SE above to 1 SE below 1-2 SE below >2 SE above  
2019 OSU 19% 10% 32% 15% 25% 320

Satisfaction of Employers & Milestones

Ohio State EPPs use three measures to demonstrate that employers are satisfied with graduates’ preparation and that graduates reach employment milestones such as promotion and retention.

Ohio State Initial Teacher Licensure Employment Data in Ohio Public Schools

The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) provides Ohio State data on employment in instructional roles in Ohio public schools. From this data, employment and retention rates can be calculated as an outcome measure of effectiveness. ODHE reports employment for candidates for only four years post their licensure effective date although they may remain employed.

Note: The number/percent retained for each year is based on the previous year’s total employment for each cohort. Retained data reflect completers remaining employed within the same district from year to year.

Satisfaction of Completers

Ohio State EPPs use two measures to demonstrate that program graduates perceive their preparation as relevant to the responsibilities they confront on the job and that the preparation was effective.

ODHE Resident Educator Survey Means by Question

To gather information on alumni satisfaction with the quality of preparation provided by their educator preparation programs, the Ohio Department of Higher Education administers a survey aligned with the Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession (OSTP), Ohio licensure requirements, and elements of national accreditation. All Ohio Resident Educators who completed their preparation in Ohio receive an invitation to complete the survey in the fall semester as they enter Year 2 of the Resident Educator program. The results of targeted survey questions are reflected here. Results to all questions can be found in the Ohio State and each program’s Ohio Performance Report. A total of 453 respondents completed the survey statewide for a response rate of 12% in 2020.

1. Resident Educator Survey
2. Pre-Service Teacher Survey

Ohio State’s Advanced Programs have taken steps to implement plans to gather completer satisfaction data through surveys and focus groups. The Office of Accreditation, Placement and Licensure oversees survey distribution and shares anonymized results with programs for consideration and continuous improvement. Means of 3.0 or higher indicate overall agreement.

Completion Rates

Ohio State EPP completion rates for the most recent three years are represented below.

Ohio State Initial Teacher Licensure Completion Rate

Ohio State tracks the number and percentage of students who matriculate and complete initial teacher licensure programs. For the M.Ed. graduate programs, on time completion is three semesters while undergraduate program on time completion is two academic years since candidates are accepted as juniors. Note: Most Special Education program completion is five semesters. Students who did not complete their initial licensure programs may have changed majors and graduated with another degree, chosen a non-licensure track, and/or taken indefinite leaves of absences or withdrew from the University.

Ability to Meet License Requirements

Ohio State EPP’s ability to meet licensing (certification) requirements for the most recent three years are represented below.

Ohio State Licensure Test Pass Rates

Ohio State completers must pass state-required Ohio Assessment for Educator (OAE) licensure exams in their content area and grade level to demonstrate their proficiency in both content and pedagogy expertise. These exams are the main measure of their ability to meet license requirements.

Data below reflect the three-year trend for overall cohort pass rates on page 1 and for each licensure assessment on page 2. The years listed in the tables represent the cohort year for OSU and the academic year for the State comparisons.

Ohio State tracks candidates’ ability to meet state licensure test requirements. School Psychology candidates must pass the PRAXIS 5402 School Psychology exam and Principal candidates must pass the Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) 015 Educational Leadership test to be eligible for Ohio licensure. Completers from both programs take their assessment at the conclusion of their program.
