EPP Data Dashboard
PNW’s Educator Preparation Provider (EPP) considers data essential for continuous program improvement.
By state law, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) annually collects and reports information from Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs). The following information is collected from EPPs, principals, teachers, and schools.
By state law, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) collects and reports information from Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) annually. The following information is collected from EPPs, principals, teachers, and schools:
- The “attrition, retention, and completion rates of teacher candidates for the previous three (3) calendar years.”
- Average scaled or standard scores of program completers in basic skills, content, and pedagogical testing.
- Average number of times program completers took the basic skills, content, and pedagogy tests before passing.
- Percentage passing the basic skills, content, and pedagogy tests on the first attempt.
- Admission practices of each program as they compare to the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) minimum admission standards.
- Principal survey results of the quality of their teachers completing an Indiana program within the previous two (2) years.
- Teacher feedback form results for those receiving initial license within the previous three (3) years.
- Staff performance evaluation results reported in the aggregate.
- The number of teacher candidates in each content area who complete the teacher preparation program during the year, disaggregated by ranges of cumulative grade point averages.
- The number of teacher candidates in each content area who, during the year:
- (A) do not pass a content area licensure examination; and
- (B) do not retake the content area licensure examination.
This information must be reported using a matrix which is to be posted to the IDOE website. While this matrix is not intended to rank or “grade” programs, it provides an opportunity for the public to interpret or compare program quality based on a variety of data points. Please note that all data points are based upon the September 1– August 31 Title II timeframe.
CAEP Accountability Measures
Teacher Effectiveness: During the academic year 2020-2021, the final percentage of teachers rating highly effective/effective was 97% based on 164/169 teachers evaluated. Data based on the academic year 2021-2022 will be available from the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) in September 2023 and will be updated on this website at that time.
Analysis of Satisfaction of employers for PNW Completers indicates that building administrators perceive completers to be applying the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they learned in their preparation program. It also shows that principals see completers exhibit these understandings ethically and in adherence with the legal requirements of teaching; that completers analyze student assessment data to improve classroom instruction; that they integrate technological tools to advance student learning; and that they are open and accepting of suggestions/constructive feedback. While no area in the data indicates perceived levels of performance that are concerning, feedback from employers indicated that helping candidates minimize their social media footprint, increased classroom management skills, social-emotional learning of students, and whole child education centered around behavior education might be taken into consideration.
Purdue University Northwest complies with Title II reporting requirements. Title II Section 207 of the Higher Education Act (HEA) requires states, recipients of HEA funds, and all institutions with teacher preparation programs that enroll students receiving federal financial assistance to prepare annual reports on teacher preparation and licensing.
To be hired in academic positions, candidates must graduate from the program and pass the licensure exams required by the Indiana Department of Education. During the 2021-2022 academic year, there were eighty-eight (88) completers. Across all programs, 72% (63 candidates) received their teaching license, a 5% increase over the last academic year.
