Annual Accountability Measures
The following list of Annual Accountability Measures, which are required by CAEP, illustrate educator preparation and effectiveness to impact PK-12 student learning.
Measure 1: Completer Impact and Effectiveness
Pennsylvania Value Added Assessment System (PVAAS) data demonstrate the degree to which PK-12 students within a teacher’s classroom meet the expected level of growth for students in Pennsylvania. The data include statewide institution scores as well as Lock Haven University scores. Linked below is the most current data available from the state.
Measure 2: Employer Satisfaction and Stakeholder Involvement
Lock Haven University teacher education programs regularly survey employers to determine completer effectiveness. This data is reviewed and discussed with faculty, as well as with employers during annual meetings.
Measure 3: Candidate Competency at the Time of Program Completion
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania uses two Teacher Licensure exams for educator certification. The Pennsylvania Educator Certification Test (Pearson) is used for PK-4 and Special Education certifications. Candidates for all other certification areas in Pennsylvania must pass the Praxis (ETS) exam in their content area. Title II Reports summarize passage rates on teacher licensing exams. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania uses a sliding scale scoring mechanism which allows completers to achieve certification with varying qualifying test scores that are contingent upon graduating cumulative GPA. Title II Report passage rates in do not reflect Pennsylvania’s GPA-adjusted qualifying scores. Therefore, the attached tables contain a conditional green column which presents first time pass rates which include the PA pass rate under this regulation.
