CAEP Annual Reporting Measures

As part of the CAEP accreditation process, every Education Preparation Provider (EPP) must report and prominently display data on its website relating to four Annual Reporting Measures established by CAEP. EPPs may select the data they present as long as it is appropriate to CAEP’s measures. Below is the data for Hope College:

Measure 1: Completer effectiveness

Hope College is provided data from MDE regarding the end of year effectiveness ratings of graduates who work in public schools in Michigan. The following two documents show the overall effectiveness of completers.

Measure 2: Satisfaction of employers and stakeholder involvement

Hope College gathers data annually on all second-year teachers. The survey is completed by principals of second-year teachers and contains questions asking principals to rate their perspective of the overall quality of the teacher preparation program in which their second-year teacher was prepared, as well as questions about the second-year teacher’s level of preparation in specific areas. The following document displays data pertaining to second-year teachers who completed an education program at Hope College.  Hope College also actively engages stakeholders during the academic year by holding Teacher Education Council (TEC) meetings.  There are two different groups; one that consists of teachers and administrators from the area schools and the other that consists of faculty members from across campus. Appropriate data is discussed with each group and stakeholders are given the opportunity to provide feedback. TEC meetings occur every semester.

Measure 3: Candidate competency at completion

All graduates must pass the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) in the area that they were prepared in order to gain certification. Hope College is provided pass rate information on all MTTC tests from MDE for both the previous academic year and a three-year cumulative span. The following documents show these data.

Measure 4: Ability of completers to be hired

For two years in a row (2018–2019 completers), 100% of Hope College graduates found jobs in the education sector or chose to continue their education. In 2020, 95% of the graduates found a job in education or continued their own education in graduate school. This past year (2021), Hope College had 57 education graduates and all but 1 (98%) either found a job in education or continued their own education. So, over the last four years, 98% of graduates have found success in securing a teaching position or continuing their studies.
