2018-2019 Data

The University of Alabama’s College of Education provides impact and outcome indicators based on the eight annual measures designated by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). These measures allow the EPP to provide information to the general public about EPP program outcomes and EPP candidates’ and program completers’ impact on P-12 learning.

1. Impact on P-12 Learning and Development (Component 4.1)

Initial Certification

A longitudinal case study focused on the application of the Unit’s initial certification program completers’ professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions learned through their preparation experiences in a P-12 setting is currently being conducted.

Data will be collected and analyzed starting in Fall 2020 and begin to be reported in Spring 2021.

Advanced Certification

A similarly designed longitudinal case study focused on the application of the Unit’s advanced certification program completers’ professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions learned through their preparation experiences in a P-12 setting will be replicated beginning in 2020-21

6. Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing and Additional State Requirements
