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

100% of Teachers who Graduated from PNW were Marked Effective/Highly Effective

Effectiveness: During the academic year 2019-2020 the final percentage of teachers rating highly effective/effective was 100% based on 153 teachers evaluated. Data based on the academic year 2020-2021 will be available from the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) in September 2022 and will be updated on this website at that time.

97% of principals agree PNW completers meet the Knowledge Preparation, Pedagogical Preparation, and Professional Dispositions of Teachers


Analysis of Satisfaction of employers and employment milestones for PNW Completers indicate that building administrators perceive completers to be applying the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they learned in their preparation program.  It also indicates 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, it does appear that consideration for how candidates might be afforded more opportunities to develop and practice effective strategies for understanding how students learn and develop at the grade level they are teaching as well as how they may work effectively with parents/guardians.

CORE Average Test Scores

Purdue University Northwest is in compliance with Title II reporting requirements. Title II Section 207 of the Higher Education Act (HEA) requires states, as 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 educational positions, candidates must graduate from the program and pass the licensure exams required by the State of Indiana Department of Education. Over the past three years, the ability of completers to meet licensing requirements has declined. Part of this decline may be attributable to the impact of CoVID-19 on completion of coursework, candidates’ abilities to complete the licensure testing requirements (many testing centers have experienced various closures, and/or participation in classroom/learning spaces. For the academic year 2020-2021, out of 85 candidates, 57 met licensure requirements for a rate of 67%. The state of Indiana’s School Personnel Job Bank (IDOE) indicates that across the state there are 1240 jobs available (as of 4.4.2021) in education with the following areas of teacher shortages identified: special education, business, math, science, world languages, and technology & engineering. An analysis of completers’ ability to be hired indicates that while we are preparing candidates for these areas (all but business and technology & engineering), the number of candidates completing is low which dramatically impacts any ability to draw conclusions from it.
