CAEP REPORTING MEASURES

Measure 1: Impact on P-12 Learning and Development:

The COEHD has been working with the Maine State DOE to provide a measurement of impact. Currently Maine DOE has not been able to provide the COEHD with sufficient information to report a measure. Targeted surveys to local school administrations have also been conducted, but have not provided sufficient information to report a measure.

Measure 2: Indicators of Teaching Effectiveness:

Data for Measure 2 is currently not available, as that data is not provided by the State to the EPP, and is not otherwise accessible. Talks with the State are ongoing about how the EPP can acquire this data.

Measure 3: Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones:

EPP has been working to collect this data through a survey of principals. Surveys are sent in the spring of each year, requesting information on students who were certified in the past 3 years. This survey consists of a general employment survey, and an individual teacher survey.

In Spring 2021, a survey was conducted targeting every principal with responses rates high enough to be reported (Principal survey Spring ’21). 440 surveyed, 38 responses.

Spring 2022, a survey was conducted targeting 165 principals in districts believed to have Teachers from our programs. (Principal survey Spring ’22). 165 surveyed, 7 general / 9 individual responses.

Measure 4: Satisfaction of completers:

A survey is sent every spring to all program completers who finished their programs in the past 3 years. Recent Graduate survey (Spring ’21); (Spring ’22)
