CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

The information on this page presents the eight annual reporting measures as required by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). 

1. Impact on P-12 Learning and Development

In collaboration with our P-12 partners, UNA measures completer impact on P-12 learning and development by evaluating P-12 student data, including ACT Aspire, Scantron, DIBELS, STAR and ACT assessment data in our recent completers’ classrooms.

2. Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness

In collaboration with our P-12 partners, UNA utilizes teacher evaluation data, shared by districts, as one measure of teaching effectiveness. We also use Tripod survey data as a second measure. Tripod survey data measures P-12 student perceptions of our recent completers’ effectiveness.
