Assessment data are measures used to determine the quality of our educator programs. Examples include data such as graduation rates, grade point average, standardized test pass rates, and employer and alumni surveys. We provide these reports on a regular basis as a measure of public accountability. The following links provide information on specific performances. Please note, the reporting period is listed on each report.

The Educator Preparation Program at The Ohio State University uses an assessment system to collect, analyze and maintain information for the purpose of managing and improving candidate, unit, and program performance.
