The University of Alabama’s College of Education provides impact and outcome indicators based on the accountability 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.
Below are the four CAEP measures with links that provide additional supporting evidence for the measures:
|Impact Measures||Outcome Measures|
|Measure 1 (Initial). Completer Effectiveness and Impact on P-12 Learning and Development (Component R4.1)||Measure 3 (Initial and/or Advanced). Candidate Competency at Program Completion (Component R3.3 | RA 3.4) (see below.)|
|Measure 2 (Initial and/ or Advanced). Satisfaction of Employers and Stakeholder Involvement (Components R4.2| R5.3| RA.4.1) (see below.)||Measure 4 (Initial and/or Advanced). Ability of Completers to be Hired in Education Positions for Which They Are Prepared|
