Stockton Initial Program Assessments, Reviewed June, 2020

The TEDU program expects that our novice teachers:

  • Demonstrate a thorough competence in their content area and including the ability to draw upon content knowledge when planning and implementing instruction.
  • Understand and integrate appropriate planning, assessment, planning and instructional strategies in engaging ways.
  • Recognize the diverse needs of the learner by establishing a positive supportive learning environment and utilizing varied teaching strategies that meet the needs of all learners.
  • Demonstrate professional responsibility by engaging in self-reflective practices and collaboration.

The MAED advanced program makes and supports five claims:

1. Our graduates build and integrate content area knowledge in their practice.

2. Our graduates implement effective pedagogy strategies in their practice.

3. Our graduates effectively engage their students in classroom instruction that  supports their students' academic achievement.

4. Our graduates apply educational theory and research in their practice.

5. Our graduates demonstrate a commitment to professionalism through caring relationships, reflective teaching practices, and involvement in learning communities.

Stockton's School of Education proudly shares its Annual Performance data with the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and with our public web page visitors.

The New Jersey Department of Education publishes an Annual Report that includes CAEP measures 1 and 4. The data represent Initial Certification completers from the 2017-18 academic year who have been employed and evaluated in the 2018-19 academic year in a report released in Summer 2021. In compliance with New Jersey labor and privacy regulations, the report does not disaggregate CAEP Measure 1 performance by program area, but does publish a profile of employed completers by certification area, which aligns to CAEP Measure 4, below.

The following performance results represent an employed subset (78) of the 125 completers who were evaluated in 2017-18, the majority of which (43 employed of 79 completers) are Elementary certified (78 of which earned more than one certification). Aggregated performance results illustrate that 94.2% of our employed completers have an effective (84.6%) or highly effective (9.6%) Initial Completer Effectivenss as measured by their Summative Score: CAEP Measure 1, which includes a) impact on P-12 student-learning and growth andb) completer effectiveness in applying professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions.

CAEP Initial Measure 1

 

For CAEP Measure 2, our EPP faculty co-constructed Employer Satisfaction Surveys with P-12 practitioners, administered to employers who rated our Initial (AY 16-17 Elementary, English, Math, Secondary Sciences, and Social Studies) and Advanced Programs Completers (Learning Disabilities/Teacher Consultant/Special Education) programs. 

Initial: on a scale of 1 (Very Dissatisfied) to 4 (Very Satisfied) these results demonstrate very high levels of Employer Satisfaction (n=39/100) with Initial Completers (n=41/112 2016-2017)  across all InTASC measure for these programs.

N = 39 principals responded (39%); 47 Completers (some principals hired 2-3 completers)

Scale: Better prepared than others (4), Equally prepared than others (3), Not as well prepared as others (2). Not prepared at all (1), or no opportunity to observe (NA).


Advanced: on a scale of 1 (Very Dissatisfied) to 5 (Very Satisfied) these results demonstrate very high levels of Advanced Employer Satisfaction for our Special Education program completers (n=22/45 AY20-21): CAEP Measure 2. No employer responses were received for completers in ESL, Reading Specialist, Principal or Supervisor (Pandemic response constrained employer participation).

Rate your satisfaction based on your observation of the employee's abilities to carry out the following advanced level responsibilities:

CAEP Measure 3

Our EPP uses a combination of CAEP-approved EPP-and-stakeholder-constructed measures to demontrate that candidates are meeting program expectations and ready to be recommended for licensure. Our Title II Report illustrates 100% Pass Rates on all initial completer certification Praxis II results, and our state EPP Report demonstrates pass rates at or above state averages.
