CAEP 8 Annual Reporting Measures

Measure of Completer Impact

Impact on P-12 student learning/development - (Standard 4.1)

The EPP provided a detailed overview of its 3 cycles (Fall 16, Spring 17, Fall 17) of data in the EPP's CAEP Annual Report 2018 (see attachment below) prior to its Fall 2018 CAEP Onsite visit. The EPP has Standard 4 data from its graduates for the Spring 2018 semester and is designing a systematic process for gathering data for Fall 2018 graduates. The EPP had few December 2017 graduates (n=2) who were hired for Spring 2018. The EPP is contacting its graduates over the past few semesters in order to determine who is currently employed in order to gather data. The EPP received data for a Math and a Physical Education/Health graduate in Spring 2018. Pre-Post data provided in Math and School Health Assessment Questionnaire results indicated both had a positive impact on P-12 student learning - (Standard 4.1).

EPP's CAEP Annual Report 2018

Indicators of teaching effectiveness - (Standard 4.2)

The EPP provided a detailed overview of its 3 cycles (Fall 16, Spring 17, Fall 17) of data in the EPP's CAEP Annual Report 2018 prior to its Fall 2018 CAEP Onsite visit. The EPP has Standard 4 data from its graduates for the Spring 2018 semester and is designing a systematic process for gathering data for Fall 2018 graduates. The EPP Observation Form (Standard 4.2) includes 10 competencies with graduates rated by employers on each competency as Distinguished (4), Proficient (3), Basic (2), or Unsatisfactory (1). The form collectively includes competencies in all four of the West Virginia Professional Teaching Standards (WVPTS) and the four InTASC categories. The overall mean for graduates in Spring 2018 was 3.6 and the range was 3-4 (all above the Proficient level). According to the Observation Form completed by P-12 staff, EPP graduates are performing above the Proficient level in competencies that represent all four InTASC categories and all four WVPTS. Observation Form performance ratings demonstrate that graduates apply the professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions that the preparation experiences were designed to achieve.

Satisfaction of employers - (Standard 4.3)

The EPP provided a detailed overview of its 3 cycles (Fall 16, Spring 17, Fall 17) of data in the EPP's CAEP Annual Report 2018 prior to its Fall 2018 CAEP Onsite visit. The EPP has Standard 4 data from its graduates for the Spring 2018 semester and is designing a systematic process for gathering data for Fall 2018 graduates. The competencies of the EPP Employer Survey (Standard 4.3) are explicitly aligned/tagged to CAEP, InTASC, and the WVPTS and reflect the shared values and beliefs of the EPP. The survey includes four separate sections that match the four WVPTS: Curriculum and Planning (10 competencies), The Learner and the Learning Environment (9 competencies), Teaching (10 competencies), and Professional Responsibilities for Self Renewal, School, and Community (8 competencies). Each competency has a stem, which reads: “The recent FSU graduates in my building are well prepared to.” The employer rated each competency on the survey via a likert scale: Strongly Agree (4), Agree (3), Disagree (2), or Strongly Disagree (1). The overall mean for graduates in Spring 2018 related to each of the WVPTS sections was a 3.5 or above with the range being 3-4. Overall survey ratings indicate that employers are satisfied with the EPP graduates’ preparation for their assigned responsibilities in working with P-12 students. The employer survey includes a constructed-response section with three open-ended statements related to: 1) Overall perspectives of the strengths of the EPP, 2) Ideas for improving the EPP, and 3) Suggestions for improving the surveys. For example, one employer commented:  "FSU graduates are well prepared to step directly into a classroom. My graduate teacher is amazing in her ability to design, plan, and implement lessons that meet the varied learning styles of her students. Her classes are well managed and discipline issues are dealt with in the classroom."

Satisfaction of completers - (Standard 4.4)

The EPP provided a detailed overview of its 3 cycles (Fall 16, Spring 17, Fall 17) of data in the EPP's CAEP Annual Report 2018 prior to its Fall 2018 CAEP Onsite visit. The EPP has Standard 4 data from its graduates for the Spring 2018 semester and is designing a systematic process for gathering data for Fall 2018 graduates. The EPP Graduate Survey includes four separate sections that match the 4 WVPTS: Curriculum and Planning (10 competencies), The Learner and the Learning Environment (9 competencies), Teaching (10 competencies), and Professional Responsibilities for Self Renewal, School, and Community (8 competencies). Each competency has a stem, which reads: “My teacher education program prepared me to.” The graduate rates each competency on the survey via a likert scale: Strongly Agree (4), Agree (3), Disagree (2), or Strongly Disagree (1). The overall mean for graduates in Spring 2018 related to each of the WVPTS sections was a 3.63 or above with the range being 3-4. Overall survey ratings indicate that graduates perceive their preparation as relevant to the responsibilities they confront on the job, and that their preparation was effective. The graduate survey includes a constructed-response section with three open-ended statements related to: 1) Overall perspectives of the strengths of the EPP, 2) Ideas for improving the EPP, and 3) Suggestions for improving the surveys. EPP graduate comments included strengths related to quality of clinical experiences, use of assessments, and a variety of teaching strategies to meet the needs of all students. Improvement comments included problems with the lengthy lesson plan template and secondary classroom management training.

  1. Student Loan Default Rate and Other Consumer Information - (Annual Measure #8)

Student Loan Default Rate:
Fairmont State University’s Cohort Default Rate is 10.8%.  The Department of Education does not break it down between graduate and undergraduate.  The rate is determined by the number of students who go into default for a specific time period divided by the number of students who went into repayment for the same time period.  The cohort default rate is a 3 year default rate; therefore, the rate reflects the students who went into repayment three years prior to the rate being released.  Our current rate is based on students who went into repayment and defaulted during the 2015 year.
