CAEP Annual Reporting Measures
Annual Reporting Measures
As part of the CAEP accreditation process, every Education Preparation Provider (EPP) must report and prominently display data on its website relating to eight Annual Reporting Measures established by CAEP. Please find a description of the Reporting Measures and St. Lawrence University's indicators below.
Measure 1 is not available for external reporting due to a very small sample size (n=1 completer for 2020-2021), but K-12 student survey data continues to be collected and used internally to monitor the impact of completers on K-12 learning and development and will be used to maintain program quality until the EPP closes the certification minor in December 2022.
Measure 2 is not available for external reporting due to a very small sample size (n=1 completer for 2020-2021), but the EPP assess teacher candidates with a student teacher evaluation and an interview portfolio evaluation that continues to be collected and used internally to indicate candidates’ teaching effectiveness. These teaching effectiveness indicators will continue to be used to maintain program quality until the EPP closes the certification minor in December 2022.
Measure 3 is partially available. The satisfaction of employers is not available for external reporting due to a very small sample size (n=1 completer for 2020-2010), but the EPP’s 2022 Alumni Survey was sent to completers after 1, 3, and 5 years out from completing the program. This survey collected data on reaching career milestones, such as completing three years of teaching, earning a master's degree, receiving tenure, or serving as department chair. Given the larger sample size, employment milestone data could be reported in the aggregate, and is available below.
The outcomes profile of the Office of Institutional Research provides employment detail, graduate school enrollment, and degree information.
- Measure 3: Employer Satisfaction Survey
- Measure 3: Employment Milestones, Alumni Survey
- Measure 3: Employment Milestones, Outcomes Profile
The Teacher Preparation Alumni Survey collects annually satisfaction measures from graduates one, three and five years out. Given the very small sample size and response rate of our graduates for one year out (n=1 out of 7 graduates for the three survey years 2019-2021 combined), only the three and five years out data are reported in the aggregate below.
Measure 5 is not available for external reporting due to a very small sample size (n=1 completer for 2019-2020). Furthermore, as a liberal arts institution, St. Lawrence University does not require students to declare a major until the end of their sophomore year. Due to this, retention and graduation rates are not available by academic program, but for the undergraduate student body as a whole.
- Measure 6: Program Completers by Certification Area and Pass Rates for NYS Licensure Tests
- Measure 6: NYS Title II Report Card for 2019, 2020 and 2021
The Career Services Outcomes Profile captures employment, graduate school enrollment and salary information of alumni 7-9 month after graduation. The Institutional Research Office also inquires National Clearinghouse records on graduate school attendance and post-baccalaureate degree completion.
