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.
