Reporting for 2018-19

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

In Spring 2020, the Athens State University College of Education (COE) collected data from two school systems that employed 13 Early Childhood and Elementary completers. School District 1 and School District 2 provided the EPP with data from STAR reading and math, DIBELS, Gold Assessment, K-6 student perception surveys, and K-6 pre and post-tests that measured vocabulary acquisition and use. School District 2 also provided teacher observational data. The response rate for this data is limited based on the request occurring at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

2. Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness (4.2)

In Spring 2020, the COE employed multiple measures of teaching effectiveness for program completers. The EPP collected data for completers from the elementary and early childhood programs during the Spring 2020 semester (as part of its rotational completer reporting). The COE employed Tripod 7C's Survey, Panorama Student Surveys, as well as teacher observations. Since all schools conducted remote learning during the Spring 2020 semester, the surveys and pre and post-tests for the EPP’s elementary and early childhood program completers were distributed electronically.

3. Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones (4.3)

ALACTE Survey - In 2016, the Alabama Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (ALACTE) developed a yearly satisfaction survey to be administered electronically to all first-year teachers (completers) and their employers. This survey, validated and reliability-tested by ALACTE, is administered by the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE), who publishes the results of these surveys in a yearly Educator Preparation Institutional Report Card. This survey asks completers and employers to rate completer preparedness on 26 items that include instructional performance, meeting the needs of diverse learners, ethics, professional dispositions, and classroom management. The only difference between the two 26 item completer and employer surveys is the value the rater applies. They rate each item according to Strongly Agree, Agree, Disagree, or Strongly Disagree for completers. For employers, they rate the same items on a continuum: Teacher Leader, Effective Teacher, Emerging Teacher, and Ineffective Teacher. The ALSDE distributes the surveys to all first-year teachers and their employers and ensures a significant response rate. For 2020, 25.8% of completers and 21.1% of employers responded to the survey.
