CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

Annual Reporting Measures

As a component of CAEP accreditation, every Education Preparation Provider (EPP) must report and prominently display data on its website relating to eight Annual Reporting Measures established by CAEP. EPPs may select the data they present as long as it is appropriate to CAEP's measures. The Missouri State University (MSU) EPP has reported its data below.

Measure 1: Impact on P-12 Learning and Development

In a partnership with the Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA) at the University of Missouri, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) gathers data annually from a survey completed by principals of first-year teachers. The survey contains a question asking principals to rate first-year teachers' impact upon students. The following document displays data pertaining to first-year teachers who completed an Education program at MSU.

Measure 2: Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness

The State Board of Education of Missouri requires school districts to rate in-service teachers using the Missouri Educator Evaluation System (MEES) that measures teacher effectiveness. These data are reported to the state annually. The MSU EPP has worked with school districts who employ a large number of its completers to gather the MEES ratings of their teachers, both MSU graduates and non-MSU graduates. The two research briefs below present initial and ongoing data collection.

Measure 3: Satisfaction of Employers 

In a partnership with the Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA) at the University of Missouri, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) gathers data annually from a survey completed by principals of first-year teachers. The survey contains satisfaction data pertaining to first-year teachers who completed an Education program at MSU. DESE also gathers data from supervisors of first-year principals, however, the number of respondents is too low to report annually, so four years of data have been combined.

Measure 4: Satisfaction of Completers

In a partnership with the Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA) at the University of Missouri, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) gathers data anually from a survey completed by MSU Education program completers who are now in their first year of teaching. The survey results contain satisfaction data from these teachers. DESE also gathers data from satisfaction data from first-year principals, however, the number of respondents is too low to report annually, so four years of data have been combined.

Measure 5: Graduation Rates

The MSU EPP reports the number of students admitted into initial and advanced certification programs, and the program completion number for six consecutive years. Typically, as admission years become more recent, they show a lower completion rate that will increase year-by-year as more teacher candidates complete the program.

Initial Program Completion
Advanced Program Completion

Measure 6: Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing

The MSU EPP reports the number of students admitted into initial and advanced certification programs, and the number of candidates who are recommended for certification for six consecutive years. Typically, as admission years become more recent, they show a lower rate of recommendation for certification that will increase year-by-year as more students are recommended for certification. Note: a recommendation for certification is also used as the marker for program completion, so Measures 5 and 6 are the same for initial and advanced certification programs.

Initial Program Licensure
Advanced Program Licensure

Measure 7: Ability of Completers to be Hired in Education Positions 

The MSU EPP reports the rate at which certified Initial and Advanced program completers are employed in State of Missouri public schools one year after program completion. Employment data are provided to the MSU EPP by DESE, and completers from Initial and Advanced programs cannot be separated.
