CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

CAEP (Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation) has developed eight annual reporting measures for Educator Preparation Providers (EPP), which are used to provide information to the public on program outcome and program impact.

Please note that the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) does not provide EPPs access to impact on P-12 Learning and Development and Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness data.

Below are the eight reporting measures for the Radford University's initial and advanced licensure programs with links to data or procedures that provide evidence for each measure.

Impact of P-12 Learning & Development

The Commonwealth of Virginia does not provide EPPs with data related to CAEP Standard 4.1 and 4.2. Thus, the EPP has collected data related to both standards through several collection processes. First, the EPP has collected “Summative Evaluations” directly from completers at focus groups and through email. Currently, the EPP has collected data 7 summative evaluations from completers on the Virginia Uniform Performance Standards. Additionally, as part of the 2019 Self-Study has developed a plan for collection by licensure program. Overall, the EPP will continue to collect data from completers and will use this information to improve the EPP’s mission of developing teachers to serve the Commonwealth of Virginia. The results suggest that candidates are effective in teaching in the classroom and have a positive impact on their students. These data are limited, but the EPP will continue to collect and learn from our completers and employers to improve education programs at Radford University.

Satisfaction of Employers

The EPP has surveyed initial licensure employers since 2014-2015. The EPP has developed a Plan for A4.1 and A.4.2 for advanced licensure completers.

Graduation Rates

Radford University Office of Institutional Research has calculated historic graduation rates and provides trends by major. Note that the majority of initial licensure candidates are Interdisciplinary Studies students.

Ability of Completers to Meet Licensing Requirements

The EPP reports the number of Program Completers who met all licensure requirements through Title II and the VDOE Biennial Report.

Ability of Completers to be Hired in Education Positions

Ability of Completers to to be Hired in Education Positions

Using data provided to the EPP from Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), we have found that roughly 75% of our program completers (initial license) are still teaching 2 year years out in the state. This number is dependent upon the divisions reporting these numbers on the date when the report is shared with EPPs (i.e. a candidate may not be listed if their contract was signed after the date of reporting). For advanced level programs, 85% of program completers are employed in the Commonwealth of Virginia 2 years from completing the program. This number is subject to similar reporting error. Similarly, if any candidates move out of state (or District of Columbia), or work in Department of Defense facilities (i.e. the Virginia Beach Area), they are not counted as employed for the VDOE.
