EPP Performance

EPP Performance Reports

Recent law (S.L. 2017-189) requires that all Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) operating in the State on June 30, 2018, or thereafter shall submit annual performance reports beginning with the 2018-2019 school year. These reports are expected to have new performance expectations, reporting methods, and layout as the new law shifts more accountability on measurable outcomes of EPPs. Between now and then, the Department will continue to collect and produce reports as they have in recent years. This is to continue to maintain the extensive longitudinal data on EPPs and continuity in reporting that has been collected over the years. The data will also be an important component of the updated reporting process in the coming years.

Individual reports on undergraduate, graduate, and school administration preparation programs are included for each institution of higher education.

What is included in the IHE Performance Report?
This rich data collection meets the specific requirements established in §115C-296.13(b) and includes a number of important components about the education programs an institution offers.

  • The initial section of the performance report provides an overview of the institution as well as the program areas and levels offered. It includes descriptions of how IHE programs address specific state board of education priorities, analyze needs and effectiveness of their program offerings, and determine effectiveness of candidate field opportunities and student teaching experiences.
  • The partnership section of the report outlines the direct and ongoing service the institution provides public schools throughout the year.
  • The student enrollment portion provides descriptive statistics about the students enrolled in an institution's program. Information about student entrance, program completion, licensure, and teacher effectiveness are included.

The IHE Report Card offers a quick snapshot of an institution's outcomes. Report cards can be located by clicking on the corresponding link in the left column.

Between now and then, the Department will continue to collect and produce report cards as they have in recent years. This is to continue to maintain the extensive longitudinal data on EPPs and continuity in reporting that has been collected over the years. The collected data will also be an important component of the updated reports in the coming years.
