Education Program Accreditation

CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) has identified eight annual
reporting measures for which accredited providers are required to publish data demonstrating
candidate, completer, and program performance. Lyon College’s Liberal Arts Teacher Education
Committee (LATEC) provides evidence below for each of the eight measures.


 

1. Impact on P-12 learning and development

LATEC is collecting data demonstrating candidate impact on P-12 learning and development. Initial data will be available for AY 2017-18. LATEC is also conducting a completer impact study to collect data demonstrating completer impact on P-12 student learning and development. Initial data will be available for AY 2018-19.

2. Indicators of teaching effectiveness

LATEC is collecting data demonstrating the teaching effectiveness of both
candidates and completers. Initial data will be available for candidates in AY
2017-18 and for completers in AY 2018-19.
2017-18 Survey of Student Learning – Teacher Candidates 7-12
2017-18 Survey of Student Learning – Teacher Candidates K-6

3. Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones

Employer Surveys
Employer surveys are distributed electronically to principals in school districts where our completers are employed in the first and third years of their employment. Initial data will be available for AY 2018-19. A pilot test of the survey instrument with all known current employers yielded preliminary results presented in the tablelinked below.

4. Satisfaction of completers

Candidate Exit Surveys
Graduating seniors complete an exit survey that measures their satisfaction with all aspects of their preparation program. Results are linked below for academic years in which 5 or more candidates completed the program. There were fewer than five candidates completing in 2016 and 2017.

Alumni Surveys
Completer surveys are distributed electronically to alumni in the first and third years of their employment as teachers. Initial data will be available for AY 2017-18. A pilot test of the survey instrument was distributed to 22 completers who graduated from all programs in 2012-2016 and for whom current email addresses were available. The pilot results are presented in the table linked below.

5. Graduation rates

Teacher candidates are formally admitted to Lyon’s teacher education program in spring of the junior year when they submit application materials for the student teaching internship. The table linked below presents aggregate retention data for all preparation programs.

6. Ability of completers to meet licensing (certification) requirements and any additional state requirements

Due to low enrollment in Lyon’s preparation programs in the past three years, pass rate data are not represented in the Title II Federal Pass Rate Reports. However, all program completers in all programs have earned passing scores on both content and pedagogical exams since 2014. Cumulative GPA at entry and exit for all program completers is also linked below.

7. Ability of completers to be hired in education positions for which they have prepared

LATEC collects data on initial employment of program completers through an exit survey and continued contact with alumni via email and social media. The table linked below provides data on initial employment for graduates beginning in 2012.

8. Student loan default rates and other consumer information

The U.S. Department of Education releases official cohort default rates once per year. A cohort default rate (CDR), for schools having 30 or more borrowers entering repayment in a fiscal year, is the percentage of a school’s borrowers who enter repayment on certain William D. Ford Federal Direct Loans (Direct Loans) and Federal Family Education Loans (FFELs) during that fiscal year and default (or meet the other specified condition) before the end of the second fiscal year following the fiscal year that the borrower entered repayment. The current CDR for Lyon College is linked below.
